Pattern: Ruffles and Ridges
, by Laura Parent, and a flower from Knitting Over The EdgeYarn:
Caron Simply Soft, in Victorian Rose (3 skeins at 165 yards/skein, worsted weight, 4 ply)Needles:
Size 10.5 circs (I think 24"; this pattern was knit flat, but I prefer to use circular needles because the weight is more evenly distributed)Time:
I made it a bit longer than required (okay, a lot longer) because I wanted my grandma to be able to wear it as a scarf or a shawl. I cast on 152 stitches as well (accident!), but that actually worked out pretty well for the bind off edge.Overall Thoughts:
EASY. Easy, easy, easy, easy, easy. It's all stockinette and reverse stockinette, with a picot bind off. It's mindless, easy to remember, and perfect for that 28 hour drive I had to Chicago and back.
However, I messed up the bind off pretty badly, so it doesn't 'ruffle' so much as 'die'. :(
Would I knit this again? Probably, seeing as how I messed up really badly. If I have time, I'll probably knit something else for my grandma, so she won't be dissapointed by my terrible knitting skills.( Collapse )
