School’s almost out and we know what that means…more free time! Since we will be avoiding the blazing Texas sun the entire summer anyway, we might as knit and crochet a cool project together! Unraveled isn’t having an official KAL for June, but we are doing several online and informal ones. Check out the list below:
Quite a few ladies are informally knitting Churchmouse’s “One by One, Two by Two" scarf with our Berroco Vintage. The WIP are turning out beautifully!
I (Lauren) ,am starting Berroco’s “Nijo" KAL on June 1st. We have more colors of Folio, the yarn needed for the pattern, coming in soon!
Callie and I are tackling “Lumpy Space” from the Westknits Summer Shawl KAL. We would love to see people do any of the other shawls or join us working on Lumpy Space. The Folio, Ultra Alpaca Fine, Boboli Lace, and Sox are good fingering weight yarns for his shawls.
We are still on the lookout for cool CALs and will update this list as soon as we find a few. Let us know if you happen to spot an awesome one first!
Let’s get our fiber on this summer!
It’s time for our first official knit-along! It was actually started by a Tuesday night regular after spotting the yarn in our store. Once the group saw how pretty it turned out using Berroco’s Weekend Chunky (we have plenty in stock!) ,it was quickly added to everyone’s “must-knit” list.
The pattern we are using is the Faggot Stitch Scarf. I know, I know, the name makes you cringe, but it will be forgotten once the beauty of the stitch comes through. The skills needed for this pattern are knit, knit 2 together, and yarnover. The scarf pictured took two skeins of the Weekend Chunky and used a size 11 needles, as opposed to the size 10 needles listed in the pattern.
Weekend Chunky has been the preferred choice to create a more open weaved pattern, but Modern Cotton would be good for those that would like to use smaller needles. Both yarns are lightweight and perfect for the breezy nights typical of a San Antonio summer.
And that’s it! We have heard plans to use this stitch to make shawls and infinity scaves and we would love to see what other people can come up with at our Ravelry group Unraveled San Antonio.
