Autumn is here


Definitely influenced by the autumn equinox and the new chunky knitting wool in the market.

In between welcoming our new neighbours, who are setting up a gin distillery just in time for Christmas ūüôā ¬†and performing surgery on ¬†Tom’s eyelid (removing a tick) I managed to make this little beauty.


In the pink

A temporary respite from crochet flowers. Knitted flowers.

Each petal is knitted separately in either double knitting or 4-ply then sewn together. One layer or two look equally effectve and I have also embellished this one with a few pearlescent beads and a funky button.

Knitting instructions:

Cast on 7 stitches

Rows 1 and 2            Knit

Row 3                          K1, *Kf&b, K3,K1 (9 stitches)

Row 4                          Knit

Row 5                          K1, Kf&b, K5, K1 (11 stitches)

Rows 6-10                  Knit

Row 11                        [K2tog, K1] 3 times, K2tog

Rows 12-14               Knit

Row 15                        K2 tog, **Sl1 kwise, ***K2tog psso, K2 (3 stitches left)

Row 16                      ****  Sl1 kwise, K1 psso (2 stitches)

Transfer stitch from right needle to left needle and cast off.

*Kf&b = Knit into the front and the back of the next stitch to increase.

** sl1 Kwise = Instead of knitting the next stitch, slip it from the left needle to the right needle.

*** K2tog psso= Knit the next 2 stitches together, then pass the slipped stitch (see ** above) over the last stitch knitted to decrease.

***Slip the first stitch from the right needle to the left needle. Knit the second stitch and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch to decrease. 

To finish off: Transfer the remaining stitch on the right hand needle to the left and pass the stitch on the left over the right (1 stitch remaining) cast off and secure.
