I've been meaning to post this for a very long time, from back when I was working on my Sandshore cardigan. I really enjoy trying out new things to improve the look or add a challenge to some of my projects and this was a new technique that I wanted to learn so i'm sharing it with you now.
Sandshore is a beautiful summer cardigan designed by Alicia Plummer , I knit it as part of The Ultimate KAL in the Plum Dandi Ravelry group. I also knit an Ease for that Knit along. Those were the days where I had lots more knitting time and Jumpers were my go to. I still want to knit all the jumpers but my knitting time at the moment no longer allows. I will crack on the project that i've been planning for about a year now. I have the most beautiful yarn from Triskelion for it, but i digress.
Whilst knitting my Sandshore Cardigan, as seen below knitted using Drops Bomull-lin in dark blue, I became very interested in the idea of knitting the ribbing for the whole jumper in one go, as I like the idea of ribbing that flows rather than stops and starts. So I went ahunting for any information about doing it. There wasn't that much out there but I did find an ehow article that this post is adapted from to better describe knitting the ribbing.
I loved pairing yarn and patterns for the previous YarniTea club, it was always fun to watch something develop on theme and whilst YarniTea club has been retired we’re going to be having a new yarn pattern club. One that in true Third Vault Style you’ve chosen by telling me what Ideas you like the most. The Vaulter's Book Club!
Now you’ve just received some (fantastic :P) yarn and mini skeins for your Potter club but you don’t quite know what to make with them.
So here I’ve put together a list of choices in varied yarn weights so that there is something for everyone. The majority of them are on theme (These are also mostly knitting patterns, but i have tried to find some on theme crochet) :D.
If you’d like to see all of them at once with easy linking to each on Ravelry you can check out the Potter Club Bundle, I’ve also thrown in some random themed patterns that aren’t listed here but are pretty cool and can be made out of stash yarn.
Lace Weight Patterns These patterns can be achieved with one skein of Tesseract.
Seems like a great way to use up minis, though only if you're feeling like channelling a little dobby :D
Hallowed Hands want your own potter yarn version of Hermione’s gloves these Dk mitts are a good option for your Dk minis, throw in a couple of other colours too.
Now I hope this has helped with some project choices, I wish that I could have found more but I will keep adding to the bundle as I go along so keep checking it out, there are more in the bundle than here already :D. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for patterns that I could add or if any of these spark your interest !
