Quick Knit: Spring Seeds Neckwarmer




IMG_20110609_212930


Here's a nifty little quick knit for y'all: Spring Seeds Neckwarmer by Bonnie Sennott.  It's a free pattern from Valley Yarns/WEBS.  I needed something smallish and quick so that I could write up some reviews.  So I used Red Heart Yarns Stitch Nation Washable Ewe in Lilac colorway (worsted wt yarn, superwash, NEW to Stitch Nation line of yarns, 183 yds/skein) and the NEW Signature Needles US Size 9 Circs that I am also reviewing to whip it up.  This only took a few hrs.  I did modify the pattern slightly by adding an extra repeat of Chart B and an extra Repeat of Chart C as well as nixing the button.  I think I would've had enough yarn to complete 1-2 more repeats of Chart B and I wish I had.  (Next time, I'lll be weighing my yarn first.) Of course, I still need to weave in the two ends, wash and block.  And although this is superwash, I will still likely give it a bath in SOAK Wash rather than pop it into my washer.  It's a rather small piece, so I don't mind hand washing if it retains the stitch clarity.

Look for my reviews of both the Red Heart Yarns Stitch Nation Washable Ewe Yarn and the NEW Signature Needles US Size 9 Circs in the next couple of days!
