knitting projectNovember 29, 2010
The leaves have fallen and the weatherforecast predicts snow.. no escape, it’s winter. And I hate it. The only thing I look forward to is iceskating, but it’s not cold enough for the lakes to freeze over just yet. This soft curry and grey alpaca wool is a comfort in such times. Knitting a whole sweater takes too long I find, I like small projects such as bonnets and scarves much better. For those of you who know how to knit and want to use the pattern, it’s fairly straight forward. I began with 15 stitches on three double pointed needles, and transferred the whole thing to a circular needle when I had increased the diameter enough. See here some great tutorial video’s as well. The first time round I increased every third stitch with one extra, which adds up to 20 stitches. The next row every fourth stitch is increased, so that you’ve got 25 stitches now. The third row every fifth stitch is increased, making 30 stitches in total. You’ll see five segments form, and I repeated the whole process each row until I had 90 stitches. The pattern I designed is repeated every 15 stitches, so the fishbone pattern is repeated 7 times.
