There will be a “proper” name but that’s revealed at the end of November, and I can’t wait to show this off!  I’ll update the links once the Mystery KAL pattern is taken down and the full pattern is put up.

Needles and knitting style: 4 mm aluminium circular for Magic Loop technique. Combination knitting style throughout.
Dates: 2nd – 17th November 2009
Modifications/notes:

  • No modifications to the pattern!
  • My first attempt at a tubular cast on and it went really well. This was wholly down to Ysolda’s video tutorial here.

Tubular cast on edge

  • The yarn isn’t the most luxurious in the world but there was nothing else suitable in my stash (would you credit it?) and this was all I could get from my local shop.
  • There’s less “slouch” than I’d thought there would be but I suspect it’s the result of one or all of the following; my gauge, the yarn, the blocking technique.
  • The knit along was fun and with 8 days between each instalment, it was easy for me to keep up despite having other things to do.

    1. Apart from having to pay attention to which type of stitch you’re casting on it’s not too bad. But I like grafting, so there’s no accounting for taste! 😀
