Shadystroll has this morning released her pattern, Under the Oak. Here is the one I did as a test knit.
This was such a fun pattern to knit. First, it’s very well written. There are written instructions and a chart. I followed the written instructions. Second, it’s DK weight yarn so it goes very quickly. Third, except for the few cable rows, it’s pretty mindless knitting. And, I think it’s gorgeous. I’ve worn mine a couple of times and people have stopped to tell me how pretty it is.
I’m making a second one using Cloudborn Superwash Merino DK. I would love to get it finished in time for Christmas but that’s very doubtful.
To celebrate the release of the pattern, in collaboration with Shadystroll, we’re giving away a pattern. You do have to have a Ravelry account in order to win. Accounts there are free so if you’re a knitter and don’t have a Ravelry account, get one and then leave a comment below telling me who you would like to make an Under the Oak for and what color you would like to make it. You can tell me a specific yarn if you’d like but all that’s required is your Ravelry name, who you’d like to make it for and the color you’d use.
Wednesday morning I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner, provide your Ravelry name to Shadystroll who will send you the pattern.
For those who don’t win and want the pattern, it will be 25% off through Noon Friday, December 16 (EST). Details are on the pattern page.
