Now Available: Iris Electra

Our first quarter pattern, Iris Electra, is finally available for purchase separate from the knit-along kits. This project is knit flat using 250 grams of a fingering weight yarn. Though the pattern calls for 10 - 25g skeins that come as part of my Spectrum Gradient kits, this convertible scarf could also be knit using 2 regular gradient kits in either the same or contrasting colors. If you'd really like to mix it up and use yarn leftovers from your stash, you'll need approximately 100 yards each of 10 colors. You will also need 9 - 3/8" buttons, a US 3 circular needle, a very small crochet hook (.85mm to 1.0mm), and 600 - 6/0 beads to complete the project as it is written. Enjoy!

And another one: Row 12: swyf, k1, k2tog, [pb, k8] 8 times, pb, k1, m1, swyf, k1. Row 4 in sections 2 & 3 should read the same. Sorry for another mistake. I'll be correcting these for the final version before it comes available on Ravelry.

KAL Preview: Iris Electra

It's already time to talk about knitting in 2014, if you can believe that! For the first quarter knit-along, and for the first time ever, we're using one of my own designs. What makes this pattern extra special is that I've written is to make particular use of one of my Arco Iris Spectrum Gradient kits. Add a few beads as you knit, sew on some buttons at the end, and viola! a cheerful rainbow to get you through the cold times. Here's what will be in each kit: - 1 Spectrum Gradient kit in Pebble Sock (100% luxuriously soft superwash Merino) in Arco Iris - 6/0 Glass Beads - 1 paper copy of the pattern What you will also need: - 9 small buttons (3/8" to 1/2") - US 3 circular needles or similar to get gauge - a small crochet hook, suggested size .8mm to 1mm (for applying beads) Iris Electra is a cheerful, convertible scarf that becomes cowl with just a few buttons. Knit flat and on the bias, the pattern is easy to memorize and simple to execute. Added skill comes with attaching the beads as you go using a crochet hook rather than pre-stringing them.
