So, as I’ve finished my latest round of thrum mitten knitting, I managed to knit something pretty for me.
Moebius knitting is pretty interesting, as you knit from the middle out, in one giant twisty circle – think infinity symbol. It does mean, however, that each round is hundreds of stitches long. Yikes.
I decided to use three skeins of Tanis’ lovely Green Label yarn, as I wanted something tonal – one colour bleeding into the next and the next.
I wound and weighed the yarn, marking the points at which I’d have to change yarn.
I cast on using CatBordhi’s method and knit the whole thing in garter stitch in the following manner:
75% of the darkest colour
25% dark blue + 25% medium blue
50% medium blue
25% medium blue + 25% light blue
75% light blue
I bound off using an applied i-cord which takes up a tonne of yarn, but finishes off the whole project nicely.
Sadly, the whole project was a wash, as it ended up being to small to wrap around my neck twice.
It breaks my heart to rip it out, but I won’t wear it at this length.
