This is the Icelandic pattern Riddari, and the yarn is 2-ply Sirri.
A new gauge for a new project.
Sirri 2-ply on needles 4.5 mm.
18 stitches and 24 rows = 10 x 10 cm.
Editing to say, that when I knitted in the round, I had 15 stitches for 10 cm. Very big difference.
This turned out to be my Aftur sweater
This very difficult question I received in my mail today, and I know it’s very difficult to match colours when you just have photos to look at.
So now I am asking all of you, when picking two colours ,which colour would you choose with Teal?
I have some photos to help, taken in daylight by my window, no artificial light. I know they look different on different computers, and the best way to match colours is, if you can watch them in real life in daylight, but let us give it a try.
Teal C8 is placed in the middle on every photo.
C3 – C8 – C4
C6 – C8 – C5
C10 – C8 – C9
C13 – C8 – C12
C16 – C8 – C7
My daughter has knitted two hats, and I think they turned out so well, that they deserve to be on the blog.
The first one is from an old Fair Isle pattern. It is available for free at Kathleen Taylor’s Dakota Dreams The yarn used is 2-ply Sirri.
The other one is striped. The yarn used is 2-ply Sirri except for the yellow and green. The pattern is from a Danish book Hattedamer by Annette Danielsen.
This is how it looks so far. 81 squares, and I think I need at least 36 more for the bedspread to have the right size.
After that I will finally decide how to place them. Something like in this photo perhaps.
