Once upon a time I would finish a knitting sample, get it edited as soon as possible, take pictures and shove it out into the world. Fast, fast, fast. Now things have been going differently. There are samples sitting in my studio that I can’t find the time for photos or editing. This is one such thing.
This is hard to take pictures of – mostly because I kind of suck at taking pictures. But the colors are gorgeous, and I absolutely adore the way the large eyelet pattern breaks up the pooling of even the most stubborn variegated yarn. It’s worked sideways with lace edgings worked along at the same time.
Rothbury uses 2 skeins of Indigo Dragonfly Octobaa and size 7 needles. The Fun & Games colorway shown is a special colorway for the Yarnover Truck. The eyelet pattern is easy to memorize and the short-rows use yarnover turns. It blocks out to a generous 76″ wide by 22″ deep shawl.
So pick out your favorite crazy sport weight and knit yourself up a Rothbury to wrap around your shoulders!
