I was very good Friday!
I did all my household chores so the weekend would be free for more fun things like helping a friend clear brambles from her new allotment. Yep, I’m strange – I like that kinda thing!
After a hard day of chores I thought,
“I’ll sit in the garden, watch the washing dry and knit for an hour”
My current project (I tell you about it in my next post – honest!) needs close following from the pattern- not the thing for a mongy hour knitting in the garden.
What to knit that does not require thinking and is fun and portable enough for the garden…
I have recently tidied my stash and sorted out a bag of rather unpromising, homeless scraplettes destined for the bin…
So I took these and my “bobble stash”…
to make more Smoothie hats. (See this posting for details of what they are for and how addictive they are. )
I was rather pleased with a couple of hour’s work
OK – I did say one hour sitting in the garden but you know how it gets when you’re enjoying yourself
Here’s what I made…..
A solidish one and a holey one…
The holey one is fun and all my knitterly friends who’ve see it grab it and want to know how it’s done -here’s the “pattern”
- Cast on 28st and do 2 rows of K1, P1 rib as usual.
- Row1:(K2tog,yrn) rep to end
- Row 2 (and all even rows): Purl
- Row 3: K1, (K2tog,yrn) rep to last st, K1
- Row 4: Purl
- Repeat the above 4 rows twice more.
- Row 13: (K2tog) rep to end
- Row 14: (P2tog) rep to end
- Sew it up and apply pompom!
