Jaclyn here and as promised, here is the aforementioned exciting news!
For those of you who have gotten the digital issue of Creative Knitting magazine Autumn 2015, you may have noticed there was a new knitalong located on pages 78-83!
Well I’m here with some more information on this exciting new project that’s perfect for transitioning between summer to autumn and practice the addictive method of knitting from the inside out!
What will this knitalong be about, you ask? Well let me tell you!
Our autumn knitalong will have two parts, each one focusing on the technique of knitting from the inside out.
The first part, lasting about a week, will be about knitting four coasters of different styles, designed to get you familiar and comfortable with this technique.
The first coaster, entitled Spiraling Stripes and pictured on the top left, uses four different colors to create a windmill-esque design using stockinette and eyelets to make this fun and playful coaster!
Our second project is Color On Color, as seen in the bottom left of the image below. This design uses increased rounds to make the bullseye pattern along with jogless stripes. This is a personal favorite of mine for the bold color and design.
Number three (shown in the top right corner), is our Seed on Stockinette coaster. It used the seeded stockinette stitch to create this fabulously textured design!
Our last coaster is Garter Spokes (pictured on bottom right corner). Using garter stitch, this project is a great introduction to our knitting from the inside out technique while still being stylish.
The coasters for our knitalong!
The second week will focus on the last part, supersizing your coasters into an afghan or lapghan! Using the same method as the coasters, you will simply “enlarge” or “supersize” your favorite coaster to a fun and beautiful piece that you can keep for yourself or give as a gift (housewarming present, anyone?)!
Week 2’s Lapghan/Afghan!
Our new knitalong will be led by the extremely talented Beth Whiteside who has years of experience as a knit designer and teacher, and moderated by yours truly!
Our knitalong instructor, Beth Whiteside.
This knitalong will be hosted on our Creative Knitting magazine Ravelry page which you can get to from this link.
Do I really need to give any more reasons? This project will work up in a breeze and knitting from the inside out will become one of your new favorite techniques! I know I’m excited to get started and you should be too!
