06 Jul Knit Along with Fibre Co. Luma!
Hi knitters, Deanna here.
Lots of you have commented on how much you love the Stonepoint Poncho and want to try working with the The Fibre Co’s newest yarn, Luma, so I thought this would be a great subject for our next knit along!
Luma is the perfect all season yarn! A beautiful blend of natural fibres, cotton and linen give it lightness, while wool adds spring, and silk adds a sutble sheen and softness. We’ve set this knit along up so that the projects will be completed in the early fall, just in time to wear your garments as the cooler weather is upon us.
The poncho is knit in two rectangular panels using a simple lace pattern and are grafted together at the shoulder using the 3 needle bind off. Stitches are picked up to created the garter stitch collar.
Bennett Creek is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed. The back and sleeves are worked in reverse stockinette stitch, and the front is worked in reverse stockinette stitch with a large cable pattern up the center front.
Skills that you can learn in a friendly supportive environment:
-Basic lace knitting
-3 needle bind-off
-Picking up stitches
-Seaming using mattress stitch
Here are the knit along dates for those who would like to join in. Participation is free with yarn purchase. Requirements vary based on the pattern.
The staff and I will be happy to get you set up with yarn and a pattern in store. The Knit along will be run by me!
