Knotty Knits with Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton
The knitting of knots is both fun and creative... placed imaginatively they can lend textural interest to an otherwise simple silhouette. They can be worked in different colors and with a combination of yarns. They are a good way to use up some of your stash! Learn the method for working overhand knots in your knitting, examine garments and swatches using the technique, and take time to swatch different knot ideas or start on a knotted cowl of your own!
1 ball each of 1 solid, smooth #4 (worsted weight) wool or silk yarn, assorted needles. Note: the cowl pattern uses 100g of Heaven's Hand Wool Classic
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
