Finish object (FO) Friday!
I had one Caron Cake in my stash in "Cake Pop". I love the look of the greys with the pop of turquoise. I've really enjoyed this yarn since it was introduced to Michael's here in Canada but up until now, I had only found one pattern I really liked.
I only used 1 cake and the suggested needle size US8/6mm. I used a longer circular needle since the pattern starts with only 5 stitches but steadily increases until the end.
For this pattern, you should be able to:
Garter: knit each row
KFB: knit in the front & back of a stitch
K2TOG: knit 2 stitches together
That's it! Really.
The original pattern is completely knit (garter stitch) from beginning to end. After seeing some other finished projects, I decided to add a little extra detail to mine. I've added some eyelets between the colour changes so it wasn't just "flat".
To do this, I just started a new colour, knit the first two stitches of the row, yarn over (YO) and knit 2 together (K2TOG) until I was close enough to the end of the row to complete the instructions in the pattern. Voila!
