Knitworthy 2 — Liebevoll

August 31, 2015

Last week we noticed a gradual uptick in knitting questions in our inboxes, our local schools are back, and the end of festival fireworks in Edinburgh are tonight. Knitting season is beginning, and what better way to celebrate it than with a new pattern collection?

Just like last year the collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make).

The first pattern, Liebevoll, is a simple shawl featuring a fun cable design that uses Barbara Walker’s closed ring cable technique to work the cables as a horizontal panel. The shawl is worked bottom up with a garter stitch border followed by the cable panel. Wrapless short rows are then worked to shape the centre in a shallow curve. The straight top edge is finished by continuing the garter and slipped stitch edging set up at the beginning. Each side is worked into the centre, decreasing across the remaining live sts and the ends are kitchener stitched together for a neat finish at the centre top. 

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to use sideways cables on a design — they’re so fun! I want to put them on everything now. Don’t worry, there are slightly wider variety of techniques in the collection. 

You’ll be sent the first pattern immediately when you purchase the collection and each of the remaining patterns will arrive as a surprise in your inbox every fortnight, on Mondays. 

Pattern delivery schedule:

Last year’s collection should give you a good idea of the types of projects to expect. All of the designs are intended to be fun and relaxing with an excellent return of impact for effort put in — there’s nothing that complicated coming up. The schedule is clearly timed to lead up to the holidays but there’s nothing themed to a specific one (though if you do have the urge to knit a themed gift there’s always my Last Minute Stockings pattern!).

The patterns will be exclusive to Knitworthy 2 until the entire collection has been released. 

I’ll be hosting kal threads for each pattern in my kal group on Ravelry and I do hope you’ll join us there.
