It’s time to swatch up for the Spriteling Socktopus Mystery Shawl Knit-along. Needles, check! Yarn, check! Ready, set, KNIT!
In case you are wondering, the swatch is knit in Sokkusu-Original (in a yet unnamed colourway – I am having trouble giving this one a name. I think I am blinded by my love for this colourway!). I’ll have some available in the shop next week.
I hemmed and hawed over lace weight vs fingering weight, and finally opted for fingering weight since it has a more restrictive yardage (it’s easy to substitute lace weight for fingering, but not always so easy to do the opposite). If you substitute lace weight just be sure to adjust the size of your needles so you get a pleasant fabric.
400 metres fingering weight yarn.
24 sts and 36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette (unstretched, unblocked)
Size 7 US (4.5 mm) circular needle, or size needed to obtain gauge
A crochet hook and waste yarn for provisional cast on, stitch markers and a tapestery needle
