New pattern release: Lucky Charm
Over the past few months I have developped a serious addiction to slipped stitches. They create the most beautiful texture in my opinion, and they are just too much fun to knit. Well to slip actually! All you have to do if to basically place the working yarn in front of the work, and then slip an X number of stitches, and then knit the following ones. That's it. Easy peasy, and totally lovely!
Lucky charm is knit top-down, three different sections of slipped stitches are worked throughout the pattern, making it both an enjoyable and meditative piece to work on. On the first two sections, you simply slip stitches on the RS, and purl on the WS, and for the last section that features the little arrows, you're going to work on both sides of the fabric. And then you simply finish off with three adorable tassels that you attach to the shawl.
Lucky charm was knit out of three skeins of Purple Laine Merino Single in the Michèle ma belle colorway. So all you need to make it is three skeins of fingering weight yarn (400 yards (366 meters) )
