A bit of further news on the Norwegian Sheep to Sweater programme – they’ll be streaming it live with English subtitles on their website!
For the non-socky amongst you…
I present Sānu!
A shallow but slouchy hat pattern with Latvian Braids and Cables providing visual interest. The pattern has both charts and full written instructions. A deeper, even slouchier version can be also knitted.
Sample shown is the shallower version, knitted in Malabrigo Silky Merino (150 yds / 137m, 50g, Shade 425 Madre Perla).
To fit sizes: 16, [18, 20, 22, 24]” / 40, [46, 51, 56, 61]cm
Photo tutorial on Latvian braids can be found here.
Testers will be required for both versions – shallow and deep, both written/charted instructions and for each of the sizes.
The test will end on November 22, 2013.
I have a pair of socks ready for testing. Some of you may have seen the Riverscape socks at the Glasgow School of Yarn, but for those that haven’t – here they are:
Using just one skein of fingering weight yarn, these top-down socks have a spiralling motif which coils around the leg and across the foot. The socks have symmetrical motifs. There are 3 sizes available too.
The test will end on November 22, 2013 and testers only need to knit 1 sock for the purposes of the test (you will be allocated either a left or right sock to knit).
A recap of all the best bits from the Glasgow School of Yarn 2013 social media postings!
