Colour A: 175 – 190 yards (160 – 175 m)
Added on: December 18th, 2021
I had a dream about this design.
It’s focused on self care and mental health.
The small repeats of hearts and diagonal stripes mean fewer long floats and a more meditative knit.
With this design, your wrists get wrapped with LOVE, your palms can be open to others or to yourself, and the semi colon says ‘this is not the end, there’s more to your story’.
Yarn Weight: Fingering/sock. I collaborated with Allison Barnes Yarn and we chose the colours together; I Feel Fine and Raspberry Cheesecake.
Needles: US 1.5(2.5 mm) DPNs or circular needles for preferred method of knitting, or size needed to obtain gauge
Gauge: After blocking over pattern knit in the round, 38 st x 42 rows = 4” (10cm)
Skills Used: Stranded colourwork, Latvian Braid, two colour long tail cast on, thumb construction. To help I’ve included links for tutorials on two-colour long-tail cast on and Latvian braid technique.
Finished Measurements: Approx. length 10 inches/25.5 cm; Approx. circumference, not stretched: 7 ½ inches/19 cm
I am donating $1 from each sale of this pattern in 2021-22 to a mental health charity of my choice.
