Stripy – gather your yarn

Remember Stripy?

Well every so often someone asks about the pattern, but it’s always been my intention to do a tutorial on making this in your yarn to fit your measurements. Finally I’ve got the time to do this, so over the next few weeks I’ll be doing a series of posts on making this. If you want to play along, you’ll need to gather your yarn. This guide should be useful in helping to figure out how much you’ll need, although I do think the amounts suggested are a wee bit over generous. If you want to do stripes you want about two thirds of your yarn in the main colour and one third in the contrast. Use whatever weight of yarn you like, because this will be worked out from your own gauge it would be an ideal way to make use of a yarn that isn’t a standard weight, maybe some hand spun.

The original was with aran weight yarn but for this version I’m going to use a double knitting weight merino. The grey and raspberry are Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK bought on sale from cucumberpatch. I wasn’t sure about the raspberry, it’s a little more maroon than I was hoping for so today I picked up some Debbie Bliss Rialto, a very similar yarn. Now, of course, I’m leaning more towards the raspberry!
