If you’ve been spending the last fews days celebrating, I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing time. And if you were knitting gifts until the very last minute, I hope you managed to finish, or at least not feel bad about wrapping unfinished projects with the needles still in like I did last year. (Just ask my mum, and Bex!)
Hopefully the projects from Knitworthy 2 made you and your loved ones happy, and so for today, here are a few of our favourites from this years’ collection. I hope you all have a wonderful new year!
With its interesting and clever construction Kærlig was one of the most popular patterns in the collection. This pair knit by Jessicablake are so elegant. (The picture is from instagram, where you can find her as mittsnmasonjars.)
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.
