Lacy Knit Wristlet
Ah using up little bits of yarn and little buttons makes me so happy. This week’s pattern uses 1/2 ounce of fingering weight yarn. And 2 to 4 buttons. It knits up pretty fast, and since it’s so small, blocks fast too! Definitely wouldn’t hurt to add some beads in their either if you wanted to give that a try.
- Needles: 3mm
- Yarn: Nature Spun fingering weight or Lamb’s Pride Cotton Fine. The amount didn’t even register, so 1/2 oz. should be more than enough.
- 2-4 Buttons
Gauge: 7 sts per inch, 8 rows per inch
Sizes: S(M, L) = 6 inches (8 inches, 10 inches)
Three repeats of feather and fan lace pattern, each repeat is 18 sts+2, each repeat is about 2 inches long.
CO 56 (74, 92) sts
Row 1: K all
Row 2: K1, *(k6, p6, k6), repeat * to last st, k1.
Row 3: K1, *K2tog 3x, (YO, K1) 6x, K2tog 3x, repeat to last st, k1.
Row 4: P all.
Repeat rows 1-4 five more times or until desired length is reached.
BO all sts knit wise.
Attached 2-4 small buttons so they line up with 4 YO in opposite end of strip.
Correction in the PDF: Row three should read: K2tog 3x, YO K1 6x, K2tog 3x. The corrected pattern is now the pattern you download. But in case you already downloaded it I wanted to let you know. Thanks to Ren for letting me know about the error in YO K1 repeats. That’s pretty key.
Oh there is a new addition to the family. I got another ferret this week and oh boy is she a cutey. You can see pictures and read about it here on my other blog.
There will hopefully be more yarn related kits in the shop on Monday too, sorry about the lack of those, I ran out of yarn to use!
And I’m almost done rewriting the Honey Bunny pattern, sorry that has taken so long. And I was right, lots of errors! I’ll let you know when I finish.
Oh, Thanks again to all the people out there who have offered to test patterns, you all rock. I now have enough for the team. The first pattern to test were sent out last week! Horray! (or was it the week before? Well people just started getting their kits in the mail this past week, so whichever you want to go with).
And the best for last: Craft Leftover’s one year birthday is coming up in July and I’m going to have a contest. I have a prize, but what should the contest be? Suggestions please!
See you on Monday! Keep it creative!
