Lessons Learned

  • Fisherman Rib knits up WIDE (hmmm... larger garment widths)

  • Watching the colors change is FUN!

  • All that practice with Ribber cast on methods was sooo worth it!

  • If I had swatched .... I would have knit at a looser tension and the blanket would have been even wider

  • If I had swatched, I would have KNOWN how long it was going to be :-)
    Lesson learned: Swatching is NOT optional ... duh...

  • Tubular (Kitchener) bind off always takes longer than I expect ... "Honey dinner has to wait until I finish this"
Knit on my Brother 260, I used 3 Caron Big Cakes (with some left over) Color Blueberry Torte.
603 yards = 300 grams

I've knitted a number of blankets with Caron yarns. I like some of their color ways.
