Have you had a chance to leaf through Creative Knitting Fall 2011 Techniques Tips & Tricks. (Okay, I admit that, even though Creative Knitting sent me a copy, I sometimes stand around at the newsstand leafing through it, hoping someone will say, “hey, that’s a nice magazine” just so I can say “oh, yes, I’m in it”. It’s very, very, sad.)
Check it out. (The magazine, I mean, I don’t need all the attention.) Full of instructions, tips and patterns.
The Rustic Wrap is a versatile wrap or blanket done in mosaic knitting. If you haven’t tried mosaic knitting, it’s much easier than the finished product makes it look. You knit with one colour at a time, slipping the other colour from the previous row.
It’s usually worked in garter stitch, so you get this thick, elastic, richly coloured fabric. Great for wraps and blankets. A coat would be gorgeous in it, hmmm…
