Linen Weave Boomerang
You can buy the pattern individually or as part of either the Linen Weaves or the Spare Boomerangs ebook (3 or 4 patterns for 7 euros).
Not really a boomerang, but then it’s not really woven either….
Linen stitch is one of my favourite stitches and this is one of my favourite shapes.
You start with just a few stitches and knit until you like the size or run out of yarn - whichever comes first - then bind off (special bind-off worked with just one yarn, but which is very easy and gives a nice 2-colour effect).
You can use the pattern to create 2 different versions: one with stockinette bands in the MC and the other worked completely in linen stitch.
Listed as Worsted - which works well, but you can use any yarn weight you like.
Great for handspun because you can use up every last bit of it. Also if your handspun is a bit irregular, it just adds to the effect.
You could also use self-striping or highly variegated yarn for the CC.
For the version with stockinette bands:
Main colour : minimum 200 m.
Contrast colour: minimum 100 m.
For all linen stitch:
At least 200m of each yarn (you’ll use bigger needles, details in the pattern).
