Here's my latest - a tiny little stuffed Giraffe for my partner's niece.
Found the pattern through Ravelry.
My first real serious attempt at stranded colorwork, and on a really small scale - the legs and neck were 16 stitches in the round. I'm not 100% thrilled with my stitches, there are some spots where the tension is really messed up.
It did turn out pretty darn cute, and my niece likes it.
I had this bright idea to use variegated yarn with the main color in it - with an interesting result.
It'd probably work better with fewer colors on the variegated yarn.
I used Berecco Comfort DK, which feel really nice and is machine washable.
Knit on size 4 DPN's.
I did have a problem with the gauge - I didn't get anywhere near the suggested gauge on the label.
I said something like 6 stitches/inch on size 6 needles, and I couldn't even get close to that on 8's!
Is this a common problem? Is it typical of Berecco?
Is it just me?
