To avoid this:
(This is an old pic. I’m further along now…one row into my 7th repeat now. Or is it the 8th? Oh dear. I’ve totally lost track.)
I’ve been turning these:
My favorite is the bright pink and green one. Beloved husband likes the purple and gold one (to the right of my fave – the purple isn’t really showing well).
One thing I realized after I had done 5 of these little suckers – they’re too small for the number of stripes the pattern calls for. So I’ve removed the last color change at the “nub”.
See how the one on the left looks like the top dark blue bit is cramped? Don’t you think the right hand one looks a bit more polished and roomy? Yeah, me too.
I’m having so much fun knitting these up. I can’t seem to stop. And that’s probably a good thing since I figure I’ll need at least 80 to make a decent sized throw.
So – anyone have any color combination suggestions that I haven’t made yet?
