Book Review:

What’s on the set:

What I’m wearing:

  • Top down cardigan (my own design based on SpinCraft pattern) completed June 2007 knit from hand spun yarn spun from Miss Lime’s Springtime fiber from episode 12

Patterns:

Rose
using Size 7 needles and GGH Soft Kid Mohair (just bits of yarn are fine)
Cast on 88 stitches and work stockinette stitch for 4 rows, ending with a purl row.
On the next row, knit  8, rotate the left needle all the way around counter clockwise, then knit 8 and rotate again
repeat this until the end.
Purl the next row
Then knit 2 together across the entire next row.  You should end up with 44 stitches.
Next, Purl 2 together across the entire next row. You should end up with 22 stitches
Next Knit 2 together across the entire row.  You should end up with 11 stitches.
Clip the yarn around 8 inches and with a tapestry needle, thread it through the 11 stitches.
This creates the base of the flower and closes the petals around the base.
Weave in the ends

Icord Daisy
Use a sport weight or fingering yarn and create a 4 stitch icord about 30 inches. Weave in all the ends
Holding a threaded tapestry needle, fold the cords to create 1” loops and stitch with thread through the middle.
Add a button or bead for the center

Calalily
Using size 10 double pointed needles, take green worsted weight WOOL yarn cast on four stitches and make a 12 inch icord. Then add 2 inches of yellow or gold icord and tie off the ends.
Now pick up and knit 5 stitches at the last row of green stitches using white or off white wool yarn.  Stockinette stitch back and forth increasing one stitch each side of every row until the piece has 21 stitches.
Then stockinette stitch without increasing for 2 inches.
Next begin decreasing one stitch on each side every other row until there are 13 stitches.
Finally decrease each side on every row until 2 stitches remain. Bind off these 2 stitches and weave in all the ends.
Now throw it in the wash and Felt it.
To dry, hang it upside down and pull on the flower to open up the lily.  Come back a couple of times and reshape until it’s completely dry
Cut a wire hanger to the correct size and carefully thread it into the stem and stame
