Has anyone tried this pattern?
Would like to try it, but only really a beginner lace knitter.
Also wondering if it is possible to knit this without using circular needles?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...Thanks
I haven't been on here in a while - so I'd like to say hello first! Hello!
About a month ago I had the thought of combining a class with a Knit-A-Long. As a result, I came up with a VKAL, or VIDEO Knit-A-Long. It's a Knit-A-Long with video support, so even beginners feel comfortable enough with learning a new technique.
My niece has asked me to do her a sweater, and I have tons of Bolivian alpaca in my stash. The yarn was supposed to be for a different project, but my friend in La Paz got the wrong weight. Now I am left with 900g of 2-3 fingering/sport weight yarn. Pattern calls for a US 8 needle and a gauge of 17 sts & 22 rows = 4" x 4". My gauge swatch worked up to 3" x 3" with 2 yarns stranded. I really can't go higher in needle size as fabric becomes too loose. If I add a third strand, I'm not sure I'll have enough yarn (pattern calls for 425g).
I just finished knitting a Beret for a friend of mine, the first for me. Anyway, I used two 16" circulars, a size 1 & 2. Well, before I finished I was needing to switch to a set of dpn's and I hated it so tried two 24" circular's. When I got down to a smaller number of stitches, I then had to use the dpn's. My question is this: has anyone knit a hat doing "magic loop" and if so, how did it go for you? Or, has anyone a super-kniffty way of knitting same?
