rocked knitalong – working into a double yo

Rocked Knitalong Graphic

As I was knitting along on my Rocked, I was working a lace pattern row with its double yarnovers. When I reached the next (WS) row and was working the [k1, p1] into each double yarnover (yo), it occurred to me that this could make for a good video.

When there is a double yo on your needle, it can be confusing just how to knit or purl into it. If this is your first time dealing with double yarnovers, give this video a try. I hope it helps!

Cotton True Sport (50g/197yds) is a new 100% pima cotton in our luxury Fibra Natura line.  It’s light, smooth, and pleasant to work with.  This is one we’ve been dying to knit with, so we were delighted when Amy Gunderson dreamed up these five beautiful designs!

Craftsy Chase 1 Craftsy Chase2_cu

The Chase is a classic vest, worked in pieces and seamed.  The right and left twists require no cable needle and are charted.  In addition to the lovely chase of designs along the front, there’s a twisted cable ribbing at the edges that provides a lovely finishing touch.

Key To My Heart is worked in pieces from the bottom up, with a sweet edging of lace leaves that’s written and charted.  The lovely keyhole in the back is an eye-catcher.

Parting is aptly named for the back pleat that sets this top apart.  The pleat in this A-line tee will naturally fold inward on its own thanks to strategically placed slipped stitches and a little reverse stockinette.

Rocked adds a little wow to your wardrobe.   The mesh pattern is surprisingly easy, and front and back are identical.  If you want a fantastic piece that you can knit with ease, this is the one. The button tab  on the sleeve is a great touch.  Very on point.

Stinger is very swingy and versatile in fit.  Worked in pieces and seamed, the cardigan is has a great shape that looks stylish but still feels “at home.”

Download the designs via Craftsy or Ravelry, either as an e-book or as individual patterns.

And hey, you know what?  We’re feeling so good about Cotton True Sport that we have a freebie for you.

Lace Scarf in Cotton True Sport

The Lace Scarf is a free pattern, written and charted, taking just two balls of Cotton True Sport.  That twisted ribbing border is a lovely accent to the columns of lace.

We hope you find something that sparks your imagination.

Happy knitting!
