I finished knitting my rainbow last weekend.
I used 3 skeins (at 350 yards each) and knit from red to violet on the first skein, violet to red on the second skein, and then red to violet on the last skein.
The pattern is a very simple one, perfect for showcasing a lovely yarn. My mods to the pattern:
- I slipped the first stitch purlwise at the beginning of each row.
- Wherever directed to k2tog, I worked k2tog tbl.
- I bound off with an applied i-cord instead of a rolled edge.
To block, I just steamed the whole piece carefully.
While there may not be a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, it just makes me happy to look iat it. The perfect antidote to a grey winter day.
