Get Knotty #2 - Done and Dusted

So pattern #2 done only 99 left!

I really wasn't keen on this pattern in the book but made the large size and quite like it, now it's finished, as it's slouchy and not as 'stiff' as the knit looks in the book.

This was so quick to make and there was no sewing, you use a 3 needle bind off, which is always a bonus in my book.

If I made it again I would make the knot tabs longer as it was tight to get the knot made and have some tab dangling.

A great knit for beginners or a mindless knit for advanced knitters as its just stocking stitch throughout with no increases or shaping until you hit the tabs.

Got to make a friends birthday present now but looking forward to making the next project.

Watch this space .....

Get knotty! #2

Oh my lord!

This is such a quick knit. I cast on around 14.00 today and have zoomed. Very easy pattern, all SS, so you don't have to think about it or check patterns, nice change after my previous few projects.

How am I feeling about the 'knot'? Still think I'll look like a complete numpty but have made the large size so it will fit nicely over my pony tail and not be too tight. The large size has fit nicely onto my smallest circular needle so I haven't had to magic loop.

If it continues to knit as quick, expect a finished result soon

Sorry for the delay!

Well this knit a book malarkey is going to take longer than expected. I'll be casting on pattern #2 today and am quite excited about it.

So why am I only up to the second pattern? Well cause I've got so many other projects to do. Three have been completed since my moss landing hat. A baby blanket, a cardigan and some chicks.

I've posted photos incase you want a sneaky peek.
