Add a red nose and you’ve got Rudolph. Knit 8 of these and you’ve got Santa’s entire fleet! I’m in the process of doing this in colorwork, a cocoa colored deer, with a red nose, on an off white background. Also converting from a square to a rectangle, for use as a guest towel. Will post a photo when completed. Fun! If I have time, will knit up several for hostess gifts.
This month I find myself knitting
Christmas hand towels for use by our guests this holiday season. During blocking,
I use an iron on cotton setting to flatten them out a bit. Fun and easy. If I have time,
I’m going to knit up a few more for hostess gifts. Tis the season!
Size 7 needles, worsted weight cotton.
This is a variation on good old garter stitch. Worked in panels, and adaptable to any number of stitches. Pretty! Designed by Paula York for Knitting on the Net.
As the designer, Dilys Sutherland, remarked, once you get comfortable with the log cabin concept, you are limited only by your imagination.
Easy 2 row pattern makes a stronger ridge than plain garter stitch.
