Useful links for Dovana

by ysoldateague November 14, 2014 1 min read

Have you seen this week’s Knitworthy pattern, the Dovanashawlette, yet? It uses just one skein of fingering weight, perfect for something you’ve been hoarding for a while like this A Verb for Keeping Warm Creating that dyed with mushrooms by their resident mushroom lover, Adrienne. Isn’t it incredible the intensity of colour that can be achieved?

I’ve been waiting to find the perfect project for this since Cookie A. and I dyed some yarn with her in 2011! 

Here are a few useful links for the techniques used in the pattern. 

Figure 8 cast on 

Working from charts 

Cabling without a cable needle 

Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off 

And for when you’re done – shawl blocking

This one on finding and fixing errors in Sherilyn might be useful too, even though the patterns are quite different.
