“Festival of Stitches” is a fun & playful project that will keep you engaged from start to finish! Different sections make it addictive and knit up quickly. The finished item will add a wonderful highlight to your daily wardrobe with a shape that is versatile and easy to wear.
Yes, there’s lots of fun colorwork in this pattern! But only easy slipped stitches (yay, mosaic) and color blocking, no stranded/fair isle/intarsia/brioche.
There are also some cables, eyelets, stripes… but no super complicated techniques are used in this pattern.
Each section contains fully written instructions and charts so you can choose which you prefer to work from.
Every section in this pattern is completely adjustable to your liking or the yarn/yardage you have available.
Designed for fingering weight yarn in 3 contrasting colors. Allow approx. 337-340 m / 368-374 yds of each color to get the sample size. Each section is fully adjustable and will work with more or fewer yards.
GAUGE & NEEDLES:
Is not critical for this project, but differences will affect yardage requirements and the finished size. Be sure to use a larger needle size than may be recommended for your yarn to allow a good drape of the finished item.
Gauge on sample: 20 sts x 40 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4“in garter stitch after light blocking.
Needles used for sample: 3.5 mm / US 4
