October is for Spinners
Arachne, the original spinner, is portrayed here in a twisted stitch pattern from Barbara Walker’s Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns (The chart can be found on page 35 if you are more comfortable with boxes than you are with words.). The scarf begins on size 6 US needles using four stands of lace weight yarn held together. While the scarf progresses threads are dropped and the needle size is increased as the consistency of our spinner’s web is interrupted by neglect and disrepair.
There is an ongoing knitalong for this scarf here. No due dates, but a gathering of fabulous, creative knitters. You can find alteration ideas and yarn suggestions there. Please join us!
