The pattern isn’t quite done, but it will be up very soon. In the meantime maybe you need to get some yarn? This pattern features two absolutely beautiful yarns by two of my favourite indie dyers, and if neither of these takes your fancy both of them have lots of other yarns that would be suitable. You need anything from lace to fingering (4ply) weight and the pattern is in two sizes requiring around 330 yds / 300m [610 yds / 555m].
This is the larger laceweight version in Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in Kisses.
I need to take photos in daylight but this is the smaller version in Old Maiden Aunt alpaca / merino 4ply in Moody.(psst. might want to get that now – there’s a sale on!)
An alternating cable cast on is a useful, stretchy cast on for ribbing that’s less fussy to work than a tubular cast on. It’s worked like a regular cable cast on, but instead of casting on each stitch knitwise stitches are alternately cast on knitwise and purlwise.
This tutorial includes both step by step photos and videos so you can use whichever suits you better.
This post was originally in our newsletter last week and since then several subscribers have reached out with incredible kindness to say that they'll miss the club but want to keep supporting us. We appreciate that so much, and, although we obviously need purchases to keep the business going there are lots of other ways that you can support us. I've added a few notes at the end on ways that you can support our business and my design work without spending money. All of them apply to other small yarn businesses, and many of them to small businesses of all kinds.
