On a roll from my last shawl knit in two days, and a cowl in one day that turned out to be closer to what I have been wanting, I dug out this yarn – from CSNanaCat’s de-stash – from my stash because I knew it would work up quickly.
It should have been crocheted, but I was not “feeling” the groove. Once I made up my mind to knot, I had the dilemma of 13s in use on some UFO somewhere in my stash. Then I realized I had a new set of 40-inch circular thirteens. Now, knit in-the-round or flat? Not a fan of seaming, I chose in-the-round and thankfully, the cast on bridged the span.
Now, what stitch? because of the short color changes, I wanted to focus on texture. I had seed stitch in mind when I cast on an even number of stitches; I ended up with – what I call – biased double seed. The interesting discovery was the textured bias stripes, which resulted from an odd number of cast on stitches. More interestingly, the yarn color stripes from such color runs. And the most interesting discovery: the color stripes intersect the textured bias stripes! Click an image for enlargement / slide show.
