On Friday Rowan Yarns has published the sixth clue for the Pure Wool Worsted Knit-A-Long with Martin Storey. The UK will have a bank holiday on Monday. Hope you have fine weather and a fab day, all in the UK. This weeks pattern is called Little Doughnuts.
Look for the spanish translation Viovioletta has done here. This time Martin suggested shades Almond and Apple for these 6 squares.
And there is also a YouTube video with Martin giving you more information about this week’s square design.
Remember to check out these washing and blocking instructions from Rowan:Hi All, as your pile of Pure Wool Worsted squares are building up, here are some tips to ensure they’re ready for making up:
We recommend an initial wash of each square, for blocking into shape. This will also remove excess dye.
Remove excess water by rolling in a towel, and pin into shape (20cm x 20cm).
Dry the squares flat and in the shade. When the squares dry, they should all be an even shape, ready for making up.
This process is called blocking, and will mean the squares are a consistent shape for making up, and won’t run or bleed into the other shades when machine washing in the future.
Any further issues, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a picture of my progress. It is knitted using Rowan Cotton Glacé and using the intarsia technique. Fun!
And here are the shades I selected for this sixth pattern of the Rowan Mystery KAL using Pure Wool Worsted with Martin Storey!
Again 1 hour / 1 square! I have knitted my squares using 4mm needles to get the correct tension.
Happy knitting until next time for the seventh clue.
