I love stripes, Kauni, Veera designs and making shawls so this project seems necessary. A very clever pattern; next time, I’d do it again in full, and knit the last row in CC and BO.

  • 11 CC sections. Started off with ~90g of the Kauni and ended with 1g so cutting it close there.
  • I carried the yarn throughout, twisted the yarn and knit the first stitch with both yarns
  • As suggested by maanel, I did my short rows as follows: 1. Knit the number of stitches. Slip the next stitch purlwise. Bring the yarn forward. 2. Return the slipped stitch to the left needle. 3. Turn your work and knit to the end. You now have one short row. 4. Knit next row. Knit the wrap stitch as a normal stitch too.
  • I used a removable stitch marker to help me count the 20 sts pass the last wrapped stitch
  • Knit only 8.5cm of MC border.
  • Started off with ~90g of Kauni. After 8 CC sections, 51g of left. After 9 sections, 37g left. After 10 sections, 21g left. After 11 sections, 1g left.
  • One of my B&L Sport was leftover ball, but the second new ball weighed at least 120g.
