Pure Wool Worsted Afghan KAL Shopping List

Pure Wool Worsted Shade Card

Thanks so much for reading my blog!

Mystery Afghan Knit-a-long: Shopping List

So here is the link on Rowan’s website to the shopping List for Rowan’s Pure Wool Worsted Mystery Afghan Kal by Martin Storey.

http://www.knitrowan.com/files/downloadfiles/Afghan_Shopping_List.pdf

Even if you are not taking part in the KAL you may want to keep the information so you can knit the afghan/blanket at a later date.

 The overall layout of the afghan/blanket is 6 squares by 8 squares (48 in total) = approx 120cm x 160cm plus trim. The finished squares are 20cm x 20cm. Each 100g ball of yarn will make 3 squares with some yarn left over.

Please note that you can knit a smaller afghan/blanket if you do not want to make the 48 squares version. How about a 9 square blanket (3 x 3) with a finished size of 60cm x 60cm (excluding the knitted edge). You will need just 4 balls of Pure Wool Worsted for this small blanket, 3 for the 9 squares and 1 for the edge.

Here are some other options:

  • 12 square version (4 x 3): 5 balls in total (4 balls for the squares +1 for the edge).
  • 24 squares version (6 x 4): 10 balls (8 for the squares + 2 for the edge).

If you need any help with colour choices and colour combinations please visit my earlier post: Choosing the Right Colours.

Rowan has now decided that the patterns will be published on the knitrowan website. Each pattern for the squares which make up the afghan will be released every week on a Monday except the first one which will be released Thursday 17th April. I will remind you by email and provide you with a link to the patterns when they are available on Rowan’s website. If you would like to join the KAL with me and over 300 of my subscribers and 1000′s worldwide and receive an email the moment the pattern is published you will need to subscribe to my blog.

Martin Storey Mystery Afghan KAL: A Message from Rowan Yarns

Here’s what Rowan have just released about the Martin Storey Mystery KAL.

Afghan KAL Poster For Blog_vs

Here at the mill, our fingers are positively twitching in anticipation for the launch of our first ever global knit-a-long! With only a few weeks left until we will release the first of the patterns, we’re now able to share with you a few more details about the project:

You already know that we’ll be knitting with the glorious Pure Wool Worsted. Made from 100% wool, this superwash yarn is available in 50 – yes 50! – colours, meaning that we’re thoroughly spoilt for choice. Martin Storey has designed the Afghan with 17 of these colours – although for those of us who may prefer something more tonal, we have also suggested a 9, 5 and 2 tone version. With this flexibility of colour way, you can create a stunning, yet personalised, piece – which, with the yarn’s easy care properties, could form an heirloom to enjoy now and in future years.

Next week we will release the shopping list, and the first square pattern will be released Thursday 21st April and then every Monday from 28th April.

Each week for the first eight weeks, we’ll release a pattern for one of the squares that Martin has designed. A completed Afghan requires each square to be knitted six times, giving a total of 48 squares. 
If you choose to use Martin’s recommended shades you will knit each design three times in one shade and three in another.

In week nine, Martin will show us how to create the trim. In week ten will we’ll provide the final instructions needed for making-up the blanket, to complete a truly beautiful Afghan.

The finished squares are 20cm x 20cm. The overall layout is 6 squares by 8 squares (48 in total) = approx 120cm x 160cm plus trim.

Beginner knitter? Not a problem, there are online videos to support the pattern, along with basic techniques like casting on. You can also choose to make a smaller blanket.

Share your progress – you’ll be able to ask for help and advice, share your comments, and photos via a Ravelry Rowan Yarns Forum page, on a dedicated Ravelry pattern page, and also on our Rowan Yarns Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rowan-Yarns/114826272423?f…).

If the pace of knitting is a little overwhelming for some, we will give you a month to finish the project after the making up instructions are released. Watch out for a competition at the end of the Knit-a-long too!

Dates to remember – the shopping list will be posted 7th April, and mark week commencing 21st April in your diaries for the 1st pattern. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing in this, our very first global adventure.

To help, the Pure Wool Worsted shade card can be downloaded from the Rowan website:http://www.knitrowan.com/yarns/pure-wool-worsted.

———————————————–

Don’t forget, I will also be publishing the shopping list and patterns here on this blog the moment they are released as I have a group of over 200 subscribers joining in this KAL. If you are a subscriber you will automatically receive an email the moment the post is published.

Mystery Afghan Knit-a-long: Choosing the Right Colours

The time is almost here for the Mystery Afghan Shopping List to be released and, although Rowan will be giving several colour suggestions, you can also choose colour combinations yourself. So, I thought I should write a little bit about how to go about choosing colour, especially if you are undecided.

Colour Theory is a very complex subject involving everything from colour mixing to colour meaning. In this post I will try to discuss some of the basics in order to help you choose from the fifty shades of Rowan’s Pure Wool Worsted yarn so you will end up with an Afghan to treasure for ever. Of course, this will help you choose appropriate colour combinations for any project that you might be considering.

I would like to add that I am an artist and painter and have written a practical colour theory course which I have taught at the University of the Arts, London and in private companies in Germany and the USA.

Colour Theory: The Basics

12COLWH3On the 12 colour wheel shown above, the primaries are numbered with a 1. To make a secondary colour, numbered 2, you need to mix together two primary colours. To make a tertiary colour, numbered 3, you need to mix together an adjoining primary and secondary colour, for example blue (primary) + green (secondary) = blue-green (tertiary).

Any particular colour has three attributes: hue, value and saturation. Hue is the term that is used to distinguish one colour family from another, as in blue from red and orange from yellow, and is used to help describe something, i.e. a ‘green’ apple or a ‘blue’ sky.

RedWhite

Red fully saturated and lightened by adding white.

Value is the degree of lightness or darkness of a colour and a colours value can be affected when mixed with another colour and by the adding black or white.

redbluGreen

Red and it’s complimentary colour blue-green are muted and then ‘greyed’ towards the centre of the image above when mixed together and the resulting colour will be darker than the two original colours.

Saturation is the relative purity of a colour and colours are muted or greyed by being mixed with their complementaries (the colour on the opposite side of the colour wheel, i.e. red and blue-green are complimentary colours). In their purest, most brilliant state, colours are at maximum saturation. As other hues are mixed in, they become more and more neutral (greyed) and are said to be lower in saturation.

Choosing Your Afghan Colours: Where to Start

Firstly, decide where you will be using the Afghan and go to that room and collect together a range of items that reflect the room’s colour scheme. Place them together to study. Take a photograph if it helps.

room items_s

Here’s an example of some items from my lounge where I will be using my finished Afghan.

Monochromatic Scheme

Using my selected room items above and after looking at the 50 available shades in the Pure Wool Worsted range I could go with Ivory, Soft Cream, Almond, Toffee, Cocoa Bean, Rust, Chestnut, Hazel, Buttercup, Gold, Seville, Papaya and Garage. That’s 12 colours from the 50 available…..quite a good selection!

PWW12COLRSHowever, the simplest idea would be to choose just one of these colours.

If you think you would like to enhance the monochromatic scheme you could add a neutral dark or light shade to add a bit of tonal interest. Choose from Ivory, Soft Cream, Almond, Toffee, Cocoa Bean, Clove, Black, Umber, Granite and Moonstone. These are all neutral shades from the Pure Wool Worsted range and can add some lightness or darkness to your chosen color.

papayaIvoryHere I have chosen Papaya and Ivory. The image I have drawn above is to help me decide how much of each shade I would like to use.The more Ivory yarn I use in relation to the Papaya the lighter the overall effect will be (as seen towards the right).

papayaUmberAnd here I have chosen Papaya and Umber which gives a totally different feeling to the one above.

Colour and Grey

PWWgreysIf you choose a strong saturated colour such as Papaya, Cardinal, Morello, Plum, Peacock and Periwnkle and team it with Moonstone or Granite you do run the risk of creating a complimentary hue over the grey. For example, if you use Cardinal (a fully saturated red) it’s complimentary hue will be seen on the grey which will make it appear a greeny-grey. Or, if you use Papaya (a fully saturated orange colour) it’s complimentary hue will be seen on the grey which will make it appear a blue-grey. You may want to bear this in mind when mixing a strong saturated colour with grey. If you do want to use a grey and do not want this to happen I would go with the darker grey shade Granite as the complimentary colour is less likely to appear.

Analgous or Harmonius Colour Scheme

Analagous or harmonious colours are colours which are found adjacent to each other on the colour wheel, i.e. blue, blue-green, green. From my selected items I could go with Gold, Seville, Papaya and Buttercup but would probably want to add a dark neutral (Cocoa Bean or Umber) and/or a light neutral (Soft Cream) to add some differing tones. As I prefer the more saturated colours rather than the muted ones I would probably limit this choice to Buttercup and Papaya with Soft Cream and Toffee as tonal contrasts.

PWW6COLRSComplimentary Colour Scheme.

If you want something more striking choose complimentary colours……colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel, i.e, red and green, orange ad blue. They work together by enhancing each other: orange will make the blue appear a more vivid blue and the blue will make the orange appear a more vivid orange. Complimentary pairs from the Pure Wool Worsted shades are Cardinal and Peacock, Plum and Buttercup, Papaya and Periwinkle. If you wanted to use some lighter complimentary pairs which would be less striking you could try Pretty Pink and Oxygen, Splash and Soft Cream.

PWWsplashcreamAs my room colours do not contain any complimentary pairs I could only choose near complimentaries which could only be Papaya and Garage or Papaya and Hazel. But another interesting colour idea would be to use Garage and Papaya with the shade Hazel acting as a ‘bridge’ to help bring the colours together. If you look closely at Hazel it is a heathered colour with flecks of bright orange on greeny-orange yarn.

PWW3colsI do hope that has help you prepare for the moment you have to choose your yarn colours when the Mystery Afghan shopping list is published. When deciding on your yarn colours please do try to look at the colours on a shade card containing the actual yarn if possible and not from a computer screen.

Comfort in a Cocoon Pullover

I’ve just finished knitting this lovely pullover, designed by Sarah Hatton, with Rowan Cocoon. It was in the Holiday 2013 issue of Vogue Knitting and of all the great designs in this issue I just had to make this one. This is very timely as today snow is forecast and I’ve just looked out the window and it is indeed snowing!SarahHattonSweaterCocoonI did not know which colour to go with and it took me ages to decide. The pullover in Vogue Knitting (pictured above) was knitted using the shade Frost #806. I decided to go with Saturn #837, a very dark purple and a new shade for A/W 2013/14 and bought my yarn from Deramores, a fabulous UK based online knitting store that delivers all over the world at amazing prices.

Anyway, here is my version………

PulloverSH_sAs you can see I have made the sleeves longer and slimmed down the body slightly but I would love to make another using a lighter colour, maybe Polar, Umber, Moon or Duck Down, (see all shades of Cocoon below) and knit it up exactly as in the original design……..or maybe turn it into a cardigan?

CocconShadesCocoon knits up really quickly as it has a tension/gauge of 14 stitches and 16 rows to 10cm using knitting needle size 7mm / (US) 10½. Rowan says that it is a,
“wonderful soft roving British yarn” and “a designer’s dream”. Cocoon is a mixture of merino wool and kid mohair and is indeed very soft and bouncy; it knits up into a very lofty and warm fabric, creating beautiful textured and cable stitches. It does need to be hand washed, but I always hand wash my precious hand knitted creations!

The only downside to this yarn is that it molts everywhere while knitting. It was like I had a white dog in the house! I’m hoping that with a few wears and washes this may lessen as I am not a fan of molting yarns!

Rowan Studio Issue 33 – The Last Hurrah

The Last Hurrah, or Rowan Issue Studio 33, is the final collection for Rowan’s Studio publications. This lovely brochure contains 10 fantastic designs, all named after rock stars, using Kidsilk Haze, Anchor Artiste Metallic, Kidsilk Haze Eclipse, Angora Haze and Kidsilk Haze Glamour and covers all knitting skill levels from beginner to the more experienced.

Studio 33 coverI would love to knit the design featured on the front cover, Jagger, and I also Springsteen, pictured below.Springsteen 1The intention of the Studio brochures was to bring a catwalk look to knitwear for more fashion-conscious knitters. So looking back through the Studio designs archive I found this design, Lucille by Sarah Hattan, knitted in Kidsilk Haze.

Lucille 260x310To my delight I saw that the pattern instructions are in a book called Rowan Studio Knits which I bought straight away!

Rowan Studio Knits 260x310This book is a collection of some of the best designs from the early Studio brochures and contains 21 designs by Sarah Hatton selected by Rowan’s brand manager, Kate Buller. It features a range of great garment designs for all seasons, with cardigans, tops, jackets, wraps, waistcoats and sweaters in a range of Rowan yarns. Although this is not a new book (published in 2010) I thought it was worth buying as I love many of the designs….but then I would as Sarah Hatton is my favourite knitwear designer.

There are quite a few designs in this book that I would like to knit but my two other favourites are: Barista (below)

Barista 260x310and Vali.Vali 255 x 340If you would like to knit Vali you don’t have to buy the book. It is available on the Rowan website as a free download if you register or are a member (see below). It was originally knitted in Cashoft (now discontinued) but has been re-worked in Wool Cotton 4ply, a high twist blend of wool and cotton giving great stitch definition.

Anyway, here is my finished Lucille knitted in the wonderful Kidsilk Haze in the purple colour Ultra (659).

Lucille2aYou can see that I have changed the design somewhat to suit my shape. I lengthened it, shaped the waistline, extended the lace pattern down my bust line slightly, added more buttons and omitted the extra sleeve layer. I’m sure I am not alone in altering a pattern to fit. We all have different length bodies and arms so when you spend time and money on knitting something it is important that it fits and suits your body shape when it’s finished.

Here’s a different view……..

LucilleB

Do you alter knitting patterns to achieve a better fit? I would love to know! Leave me a reply (below) saying what you have done. If you would like to send me a photo of the design and how it turned out, please leave a reply stating that you would like to send a photo and I will contact you directly.

My Bolster Cushion for Rowan and a ‘Knitted’ Painting!

Just before Christmas I was busily working on a design for Rowan using their new yarn, Pure Wool Worsted …….which many of you are waiting to use for the Martin Storey knit a long (details still to come in the next week or so).

The remit, which was given to me and my fellow Rowan Ambassadors, was to design a home-ware accessory using a maximum of 3 balls of yarn. After submitting my design, Wheel Barrel, I’m proud to say that it was accepted and published by Rowan Yarns along with the other Ambassadors designs in the Pure Wool Worsted Home Décor Online Collection. This collection is a free download for all Rowan Subscribers and Rowan Members. (See links below).

Wheel Barrel, shown below, is a bolster style cushion using 3 balls of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted, a wonderful soft machine washable yarn which is available in fifty different shades. I used Ivory (101), Umber (110) and Cardinal (136). The cushion cover is knitted in the round using a textured stitch and is finished with a button closure at each end. My pattern also includes instructions on how to make the cushion pad.

CushionC_sI have also designed another home-ware item using Rowan Pure Wool Worsted: a ‘knitted’ painting called Fibonacci Octad shown below.

Fibonnacci Octad Situ3_sAnd here is a closer look……………

Fibonnacci OctadYarnTail_sThe pattern for the knitted wall art is available on Ravelry along with my other designs.
