Slipped stitch rib and very easy colourwork.

in the main section:

  • 4/10 rounds are just knit
  • 6/10 rounds are stranded, but with no catching of floats

(You only need to catch floats on 2 rounds in the crown).

A good beginner fairisle project .

You can use DK or Worsted weight yarn - just be sure to check your gauge.

rib is explained in written form - colourwork is charted.

A few knitters grabbed yarn and needles and took up the challenge during the ravellenics - medal winners are:

gold - willi44 - first finished
silver - Mommybird58 - second
bronze - heartfeltfibers - third
