I don’t usually do New Year Resolutions but I’ve decided to have a go this year with reference to my blog. I will attempt to post at least 3 times per week, once about painting, once about food & cooking and once about knitting and/or crochet.
So, here goes. I have spent the past couple of evenings knitting a small blanket/throw. I was tempted by the beautiful colours in this wool. It is a wool that is normally used for knitting wavy scarves but I wanted to see if it could work as something flat :
cast on a multiple of 2 plus 1
first row: p1 *k1, p1*, repeat from * to *
second row: k1 *p1, k1*, repeat from * to *
row 3: purl
row 4: knit
keep knitting till you have something the size that you want it, or until you’ve run out of wool, as I did!
I used size 20mm needles which are fab at enabling me to create something very quickly.
