Notes

Mod - for some working top down using Judy’s magic cast on (like sock toes) of 96 sts, working top down with faux seam, enhancing “ears” by catching with a single stitch. Others bottom up in the round with a three-needle bind off on the inside.

Hunting out every scrap of pink yarn in the house to use until the consignment of cheap acrylic in various shades of pink arrives from Kemps.

Making as many as possible between today (9 Jan) and the march (21 Jan) to hand out on the day.

  • 50g/85m Rico creative cotton aran colour 64
  • 20g/34m Rico creative cotton aran colour 14
  • Cast on 104 sts on 4.5mm needle, 2.5” 2x2 rib, change to 5mm needles, further 2” rib followed by 4” st stitch. Three needle bind-off with 5.5mm needle.

  • 28g/66m Sirdar supersoft aran shade 0820 (“ears”)
  • 10g/9m Crystal palace yarns mochi plus shade rainbow (ribbing)
  • same top-down structure
  • Because the rainbow yarn was the end of a ball and all I had left the ribbing is much shorte than required. Will check with intended recipient whether I should add more in the main colour.

#6

  • 65g/127m Stylecraft special aran, shade 1241 “fondant”

  • 24g/50m Hayfield Bonus Aran shade 0774
