(above is a photo of a stolen moment knitting away on my caplet!)
Between the book next to me right now awaiting this post to be written so I can start reading! — and the soft green cakes of this awesome Umbra yarn.., and the fact I BOUGHT OUTLANDER ON iTUNES!!…today couldn’t be much more wonderful!
For those reading this BE SURE you are working from THIS PATTERN —> (On The Road v. 2.0 ) for the capelet
The body set up should read:
“Set up Body:
Set up row: Knit all stitches
Next row (RS): k all sts
Next row (WS): * k2, p2 * 3 times, pm, k5, pm, k1, pm, k 46, pm, k1, pm, k3, pm, *k2, p2* 3 times k2.”
Your original pattern had 36. Mea culpa, forgive me.
Something to note as well:
I would be very interested to have you weigh in! When I knit Claire’s Capelet: On The Road, I found gauge on size US 10.5s…but I was the only one, which is often the case I find between my knitting and my test knitters. Each of them got identical gauge on 10s (as the yarn recommends) which is why I had 10s included in your kit. So be sure to let me know what needle you got gauge with…or are you just going for it?
And that brings up a great Chatting topic for us today and the next couple of days!
