My Tosh Merino Light in Candlewick has found it’s way back onto my needles. Remember this color from my first attempt at Stripe study?
I am having some company over for a potluck on Friday and was trying to think of ideas for my table decor. After just a couple of ravelry searches, I came up with this pattern and then, even better, this modification. My first thought was to make them as coasters and place one under each water glass, but some simple math told me there was no way I’d have time to do 13 of these in 3 days. Instead, I’m making 3 more and I’ll use them under my candlestick down the center of the table.
Look how cute they look with my dishes, too!
Fair warning: These are a little tricky to get started on. I did these on a set of size 2 double pointed needles and you start with just 6 stitches total. I think I ripped out and restarted no less than 6 times, but don’t get frustrated, and don’t give up. It’s worth it. The whole pattern is only 20 rows and takes about an hour, including all those restarts.
