Pettine

DSC04803
I finished up Pettine last night. Those last few decrease repeats really zipped along! I've got to block it now but the knitting is all done. This was my February project for my Knit Something of the Month Club so I'm still on track with that (good to know that I haven't gotten behind two months into the year).

The pattern was Pettine, which is available either all by itself or in an eBook with 7 other designs (all shawlettes knitted from side to side). The yarn I used is the Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere in the Joy in the Morning colorway. This particular colorway was a special dyeing for The Loopy Ewe's anniversary, but the yarn base is available in all the regular Dream in Color colorways. It's a wonderful yarn and I will definitely be getting some more for the stash! The nice thing about this pattern (and all the patterns in this little eBook) is that since you knit the shawlette from side to side, you can adjust your size depending on the amount of yarn you have. You will need a scale or some way to know when you hit the halfway point, but you could easily work these designs in anything from laceweight to bulky weight and as long as you adjust your needle size to your yarn weight, they will work. I think these designs could easily be used for some serious stashbusting projects!

"available in all the regular Dream in Color colorways" = actually it looks like the cashmere has its own colorways? Those are not the same as regular smooshy, classy, etc.
