Pattern: Magnum Caplet
Yarn: Cascade Magnum in colourway 9408
Needles: US 15 / 10.0 mm circulars
Mods: I don’t do a lot of super bulky knitting, and I
looked in 3 different stores didn’t feel like buying
US 19 (15 mm) needles, so I decided to make do with what I had. I used
my 10 mm circulars, and cast on for a size larger, which worked out
Notes: So warm and soft! This is such a lovely, cozy thing to throw on over petty much any long sleeved tee and it instantly provides warmth. I even scrunched it up as a cowl when I had my coat on, and it was great. I love the simple design, and at that gauge, it knit up incredibly quickly.
When it comes to caplets, being able to manoeuvre it over your shoulders is important, which means a stretchy bind off is crucial. I absolutely love Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off, and there is a wonderful video tutorial with Cat Bordhi right here.
A couple of weeks ago, Erica had a great giveaway sponsored by All Modern. And I was the lucky critter that won!! I selected a gorgeous charcoal and white organic cotton blanket:
Doesn’t it look great on the futon? It’s surprisingly soft, and the cats just love it (G loves it too). They have good taste.
Yarn is the tabby, Gatsby is the gigantic ball of ginger fluff. G is my abbreviation of my husband’s name (Guy), and is the awesome photographer for all these pictures, as usual.
