A Whole New Way to do Eyelet Ribs with Cleverly Expanded and Extended Yarn-Overs.

I revived this old and personal favorite to be able to experience one skein of the luscious new cashmere from Blue Sky Fibers.

The pattern has pictorials for the unusual techniques and will have links to short videos as well.
