And just like that four weeks are over and the next issue of Knit Now magazine is available and - what can I say? - there's one of my patterns in this issue too: Acacia Stole.
The light as a feather stole combines traditonal patterns from Estonian and Shetland knitting. The rectangular stole is worked using an interesting construction method: It is started with the border of one short side knitted sideways, then stitches are picked up from the border and the main part (including side borders) is knitted in one piece; finally the top border is knitted on to the main part sideways and there are only a few stitches to graft. With this method there are hardly any finishihg touches, but of course the stole does need a good soak and blocking, to open up the lace and show the beauty of the pattern.
The pattern is included in the newest Knit Now magazine, issue 144, available since yesterday from stores all over the UK and also online, for example from Craftstash.
