So yesterday after what felt like weeks of waiting (which actually was only 5 days) my yarn from Knit Picks came in! I can’t go into much detail about the yarn or the pattern I’m doing because the finished project is going to be a gift to my parents. Since my Mom is this blogs biggest fan so, no secrets are going to be revealed. What I can tell you is that it is knit as a giant circle from the inside out! I’ve never done anything like this so I was pretty pumped to get started.
This video is the one I used to figure out Emily Ocker’s cast on. There are a lot of good Youtube videos out there but this one is the one that did it for me. Every single stitch I cast on was an Ah-ha moment for me, which I loved. It was awesome to see it all come together. I’m not very good and could only go at the pace of a crawling inchworm but it was pretty cool to see it come together.
So because I can’t share the project I’m working on with you, I’ll share some other circular projects that start with this cast on technique that I’ve been eyeing!
I feel like some of these patterns are a bit beyond my abilities – my blocking skills leave something to be desired but they are gorgeous to look at! If you can tackle a project like that, more power to you! Have you attempted a circular project like this before?
