Every summer, knitters the world over plan to get a jump on their winter gift knitting. But, for many of us, it’s so hot in the summer! Who wants to work on some large woolly shawl all summer long? This is probably is why so many of us make cotton dishcloths as gifts… So… why stick to the same-old-same-old when there are so many techniques to try and so many little home projects to experiment with – like… napkin rings!! These rings use sock yarn (perhaps the end of a skein already turned into socks?) and a small number of beads each to depict four popular and easy-to-identify constellations in the night sky. This is a good introduction to beading and chart reading, as the background is a straightforward stockinette stitch with garter edging, and the buttonhole is made with a double yarnover.
