With increased concern for privacy and personal information recently raised on Facebook, I began a new account over on a new social medial platform called MeWe. You’re welcome to sign up to MeWe and join the Knitivity group there. I’ll give it a try to see how well it grows, though it’s only been a few days for me and I’ve not explored all the features and benefits — as I understand it, the privacy features rank high for many people.
Meanwhile I will try to remember to post everything first here on the blog, and then share the blog post to the Knitivity pages in Facebook, Ravelry, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, MeWe, etc. 🙂
So anyway, the group cover page on MeWe was one I pulled at random, but it received several comments and requests.
This is a version of the prayer shawl/comfort wrap I made for my daughter’s mother-in-law after her husband’s passing. It is one of the designs that can be made from the stitch pattern given in my Lattice-and-Cables Project pack. In the picture show, it was severely stretched, which really opens up the stitching.
The stitches are really basic: cables and K2tog + YOs, and can be done on nearly any yarn with good stitch definition and any size needles appropriate for the yarn. Here are some other examples, also give in the Project pack.
I don’t have the Lattice-and-Cable Project pack on the Patterns page any more (too many pattern PDFs were being downloaded, yet no payments were coming through), but if you would like the Projects pack, you may have it for $7.50 — just drop me an email and I’ll write an invoice and then email you the PDF file. Or just send $7.50 to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) at PayPal with a note that you’d like the Lattice-and-Cables Project pack — 11 pages of text instructions, charts, pictures, and ideas for other projects.
This really is a very versatile yet simple stitch pattern. Done up in white or pastel mercerized cotton I could even see it done as summer-breeze curtains for some visual privacy with good air flow at an exposed window.
