WIN £200 / $250 to spend at LoveKnitting with #MeTime knits competition!
After all the gift knitting, January is knitting me-time! What are you knitting for yourself? Merion has started off with a gorgeous shawl, and we’ve got a competition for you too!
Happy new year knitters! After all those handmade gifts, it’s time to grab some knitting me-time and make something for yourself! After a jumper, many scarves, cowls, pairs of gloves (and lots of crocheted gifts too) my new year’s knitting resolution is to make something for myself once a month!
This month, I’ve made a beautiful shawl called Border Ballad by the super talented designer SEAknitting. I spied this gorgeous pattern in my feed, knitted in the deliciously creamy West Yorkshire Spinners Blue Faced Leicester DK, and loved the simple lace edge and cosy garter stitch squish – and I curled up with my needles and made myself one in some Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK that I had in my stash. The lovely thing about this scarf is that you can use your favourite DK (you’ll need 200g), and it grows so quickly because of the short rows!
The pattern repeat is easy to follow – perfect for new knitters who fancy the challenge of a simple lace edge using yfwd, ssk, k2tog – and the clever firm edge that is formed with the help of a tbl stitch. It’s long enough to swirl a few times around your neck and froth sweetly at the front.
I have loved knitting it so much, I’ve started another one straight away in Wendy Merino DK in Claret!
