I can't believe that October is almost over with Halloween next week! Christmas is going to be here before we know it...Have you started your gift knitting?
Paulette finished her second Nightshift by Andrea Mowry. This one she can't decide if she is keeping or gifting!
Linda finished her Like A Cloud by Joji. Like a Cloud is loose cozy cardigan. Joji - Since I was using a fuzzy yarn, I designed a fuss free pattern… The combination of yarns I used feels just exactly like that, like a cloud! So that’s the only name that kept popping in my head.
You can use 1190 (1320, 1390, 1550, 1715, 1880, 2046, 2211, 2475) yards [1090 (1210, 1270, 1425, 1575, 1730, 1880, 2030, 2270) m] of fingering weight yarn or a combination of yarns that will give you the right gauge. The gauge is 23 sts and 34 rows to 4” (10 cm) in Textured Pattern (see Stitches Used) after blocking on US 4 (3.5 mm) needles.
