knitting for life
There's was pattern on Ravelry that I saved from the publisher's page before the link to the website went down. Here is the designer's picture.


My version: I used 4 skeins of Noro Silk Garden Cash Iroha instead of La Boheme and had enough for one additional repeat but finished with only 3 rows of knit instead of five. I'm very pleased with the results. It's knit lengthways (you have on your needles the number of stitches - 135 - that makes the width of the finished item as shown in the photos.} The colours of the Noro may be deeper than the La Boheme but the way the variegation works is very similar. The pattern is worked in one stitch throughout, with a few 'eyelets' made by knitting two stitches together followed by a yarn forward repeated along the row.

YaY for knitting that is relaxing and doen't require much concentration, just a tally clicker for counting rows, and big needles Why can't you get thick needles in long enough lengths to prevent lots of stitches suffering claustrophobia?

I had some Noro Cash Iroha left over from this project and a couple of funky buttons. I like this hat pattern as it requires no seaming. Even the dreaded double-pointed needles hold no terrors for me now.

One down, one to go.

Thank you. The shawl was a lovely pattern to work. The button is one of a set of three, all with different designs on them. I have three different colourway sets and am down to one remaining button in brown now.
