Swatching instructions say to knit a swatch using the larger needles (I got gauge with size 4) working in the rnd or back and forth using two colors, any stranded pattern we wanted, since we don't have the chart yet. We're to aim for 6 1/2 sts/in. Sport weight or DK would be most suitable.
We will get one part of the pattern each week. Today (If you're reading this on Monday, January 30th) we get the first "clue." It will be fun to see what the project turns into. It isn't too late to join us if you want. It isn't a race. Just a fun thing to do together. All you need is the pattern (see link above) and 5 skeins of sport-weight yarn, each a different color. Just get your pattern and yarn and join us! We get the last clue February 27, 2012. You can buy the pattern later, but it will cost more, and you need to finish with the group to qualify for the drawings. (Yes, there are prizes!)
Isn't purple her favorite color? Do you have any leftover?
Oh, I have plenty of each color... and yes, purple IS her fav color.
That was even faster than I expected! Looks great, too. :)
Thanks! I'll have it done in a bit.
Different, too! But I like it.
The pompom makes the pointy bit at the top look just right!!! :) And I love your mod for the band. Very cute!
Thanks... I thought it needed a pompom, and my DD suggested the color. Glad you like the band, but I should have made the flowers a bit smaller. Oh, well, I like it, too.
As always, a great Blue Lake Knitter interpretation.
