Jan 21, 2015 11:14:58 PM

Beth Kling’s “Aplomb” shawl features a dramatic edging that you knit onto the body stitches as you go. No binding off ‘loosely’ or unpicking a provisional cast-on, you are essentially casting-off while adding flair! 

The edging is not difficult for a more advanced knitter, and completely doable for an intermediate knitter who wants to stretch their skills. In fact, the chart and instructions are so cleanly written it's likely you won't need the tutorial at all! Nevertheless, we put together a quick photo tutorial to guide you through the tricky spots.

In this tutorial you'll see:
-How to get from the ‘Set-Up for Edging’ to cruising through Chart A
-How to join your knitted edging
-How to make and drop multiple YOs

Let’s get started!

Alana Dakos - Cabled Leaf Pullover

Mar 9, 2015 4:53:54 PM

Our focus with Kitterly is creating a great experience for our customers from the moment they come to our site clear through casting off and showing off their new finished project. For that reason, we knew that Alana Dakos from Never Not Knitting would be a perfect match!

 

 

You might know her from her best selling books Coastal Knits with Hannah Fettig, Botanical Knits and Botanical Knits 2. Alana’s designs are inspired by nature, blending rich color with cabling to create delicate leaf motifs. Each design is a knitters dream with clear instructions and creative construction. I admit to being a perfectionist to a fault and the attention Alana pays to each detail until the last stitch is bound off which is something I appreciate immensely.

 

The "Cabled Leaf Pullover" is her exclusive design with Kitterly, and we are so excited to have the opportunity to present it to you!

I have a love affair with all things French. France and I met in 2002, and our connection has only gotten deeper over the years. I love the language, even though I can’t speak it at all, I love their culture, their art, their architecture, their music (I’m a pianist and my favorite composure is Debussy), their fashion, their cities, and most importantly, their food and amazing pastries! The bread, the bread, the bread!

The nupp stitch is a quick method for making a cluster of stitches that pop out of your knitted fabric. The nupp stitch is used a lot in lace patterns, such as “Flan” by Heather Zopetti, to make flower buds, or berry motifs. It’s not as big or bulbous as a bobble, but it still adds a bumpy dimension to handknits that is quite charming! In this tutorial we are going to show you how to knit the nupp stitch so you can add it to your knitting playbook.

Introducing the Mermaid Scarf

Jul 2, 2015 1:58:43 PM

close up mermaid scarf


The new Mermaid Scarf exclusive pattern from Kitterly.com was designed to be fun, quick and easy. Since it's garter stitch knit using size 13 needles a fast, dedicated knitter with a free day could easily finish it without losing sleep. Those more sedate paced knitters with a cramped schedule should still be able to finish it in a matter of days as long as they keep picking it up during free moments.

Kitterly Helpful Hints: Adding Fringe

Aug 14, 2015 7:02:09 PM

We just love little extras, like pom poms or fringe! With our first kit club subscription we sent enough yarn to start and complete the Rivulet by Tin Can Knits

This shawl is simple yet intriguing with the use of knit and purl stitches to create a pattern that mimicks moving water. The fringe adds a bit of drama and helps with the illusion of a rushing river. Adding fringe to a project isn't difficult but we want every project to be a stress free as possible; It's the Kitterly way after all.

When the Kitterly Team sat down to talk about what we wanted to include in our Kit Club shipments we knew Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails were a must. The colors of Madelinetosh are so inspring that we decided to create an ombre effect with the varigated and the solid hues.
