When designing Rime's the Reason for Knitty I fell in love with the cable stitch pattern. This trio of designs feature adaptations of the original Rime Cable for smaller projects. First, there is a set of fingerless mitts which use my Phalangee finger opening technique (see Knitty Deep Fall 2012). The Phalangee technique creates finger openings with just a set up row, a connecting row and an unusual bind off!!
Next, there is slouchy hat in two sizes. For a comfortably snug fit the hat begins with a smaller version of the Rime Cable and then transitions into a larger version of stitch pattern. The crown shaping is incorporated naturally into cable design and is worked over the final 10 rows creating a stunning starburst.
The final pattern for this collection is a graceful circular cowl which comes in two sizes. The smaller version is sized to be worn as a simple tube at the neck. The larger version can be twisted and doubled (or tripled) to create artfully draped layers.
Both written and charted formats are provided. A larger needle is used for the hat and the cowl than for the mitts creating a less dense fabric for easy draping. The design features Knit Picks' sumptuously soft Capretta which is a luscious pleasure to both knit with and wear.
