Knit Along with Lily

We have always been fond of Lily Kate Designs so we were really excited to see that there is to be a knitalong of all of her designs over on the Lily Kate Designs Ravelry Group. Many of Kate's designs feature Scrumptious yarn, including her wonderful contributions to Scrumptious Collection Volume 1. So the question now is: which of her designs will we knit first?

One possibility is the Alysha hat pattern which calls for one skein of 4ply Scrumptious and features twisted stitches and cherry cable details. There is an option to make this snug fitting hat slouchier with blocking and would be a lovely transitional piece for Spring.

Kentmere is a great stash busting project because even though pattern features a fingering weight and worsted weight version, Lily has included instructions of how to customise your knitted item and the only restriction is the amount of yarn. This means you can knit this twisted piece in whatever Fyberspates yarn that you've been dying to show off or been hoping to treat yourself with! The pattern also includes a helpful tutorial on how to achieve that interesting twisting.

As the weather warms up, many people will be craving some lace and Wray will help with that. Wray is a top-down cardigan with short, slightly puffed and pleated sleeves and is available in 9 sizes to fit bust 30 inches -46 inches.

You can find the knitalong here.
