Wherein I read to you directly from this great and incredibly condensed little manual, because I thought that would make a fun little detail. Also condensing over two weeks of work into a more bite-sized chunk. 🙂
This video took longer to make than I would like to admit. Ah, the things we do for ten minutes of condensed entertainment. They are really warm though, and fit really well. Which is lucky for me since there is only one standard size. 😬
If you find your knitwear to be itchy, I can really recommend blocking! It helps the wool fibers relax and “settle”.
Needles: As far as I can tell, the historical UK size 16, equates to European size 1.25 mm, and US size 0000 (and probably modern UK size 18?).
Wool: Thin undyed lamb’s wool from Norwegian spinnery Rauma. 235 m/50 g (257 yards/1.76 oz)
The beautiful embroidered flower pendant was a generous gift from the amazingly talented Sina Mook on Instagram.
The cowl I’m wearing is (with a small variation to the rib-knit collar) this one, and it has been keeping me supremely warm in all the right places.
The skirt I am wearing was made by me and documented on my channel.
