Sugar Plum

Hello, Friday! And you know what that means ... time to release a new design for our Top 10 Gifts to Knit(along). Drum roll, please ... Introducing Sugar Plum!

 

 

Designed by Christina Peters, Sugar Plum is a fast and easy cowl knit in the round using a simple mistake rib. Worked up in two skeins of Cascade Yarn's multi-colored 128 Superwash, this cowl is so delightfully soft and cuddly you'll want one for yourself! Free patterns for all of the KAL projects are available at the shop, and we'll have 128 Superwash Multis at a 10% discount now through next Thursday.

 

Have you entered to win the $50.00 gift certificate yet? If you've knit up any of the KAL patterns in Knitting Bee yarn, post a pic on ravelry or send us an email. You can even stop in the Bee and we'll take a photo for you. Who knows, you just might win!

 

Yesterday we received a HUGE order of Madelinetosh Merino Light and DK. Hope to get a few photos up soon. It's soooo incredibly gorgeous. Somehow I managed to get out the door last night without taking a sweater quantity with me. The Merino Light would make a gorgeous Hitofude Cardigan, but then I saw Juno. Decisions, decisions!

Hi Claire,
My apologies as there was a slight goof in my post. The pattern does use a mistake rib, but it’s actually a k3, p1 mistake rib.

In true rib the knit and purl sts all line up vertically. In mistake rib (also called broken rib), the sts are offset so that they create an undulating fabric. Every 4th st lines up, and the other 3 in between alternate.

We plan on releasing the Sugar Plum pattern next week, so stay tuned.

I think my 14yr old granddaughter would like this cowl. But I can’t figure out what you mean by the K2, P2 mistake rib. Could you expand on it? I have 3 projects going right now. What’s one more :) thanks.
