Introducing Fairy Tales Hand Dyed Yarn - A KnittingFairy Exclusive!

Fairy Tales 3394 Cover

Featured Pattern

Sea Purls 2015 1413
Ix Chel

This pattern was designed as our Knit-A-Long for the Sea Purls 2015 cruise. It begins with a garter-tab cast on and is worked from the top down and ends with an option beaded bind-off. The entire pattern is written and stitch counts are given after every increase row. The pattern offers two blocking options, one as a smooth half-circle and the other features points or “rays”. Nothing is different in the knitting, just in the way it is blocked.
