Etude no 5

$5.00

SIZE: Approximately 14.5” height x 82.5” width, blocked.

MATERIALS: 

Expression Fiber Arts Twisted Tweed Sport

Shown in color: Fisherman

3 skeins  

If that color isn't available, any from this category will work. We used a total of 780 yards for the sample shown.

NEEDLES: US size 5 (3.75 mm) circulars or straights (or size needed to make gauge)

Advanced Beginner -  This pattern is suited to the adventurous knitter wishing to learning new techniques.

Notes From the Designer:

•A gorgeeeeous shawl that is easier than it looks! The 5th in our series of Etude patterns, this beauty can be dressed up or down and is sure to become a wardrobe staple!

•A simple garter stitch pattern is glamorized with the addition of a knitted-on cabled border. The cable pattern is quickly memorized and is easy enough for new cable knitters, while also entertaining experienced knitters.

•Knit sideways from end to end, this is a great travel project that doesn’t require a long needle to work hundreds of stitches on the final rows.

•All shaping is worked within the garter stitch body to keep the cable pattern intact.

•While working on this pattern, I listened to a vinyl recording of Disney’s “Fantasia,” which I bought years ago at a secondhand shop. I loved watching and rewatching the video when I was a kid, and I still enjoy most of the musical selections from it. I listen to that old vinyl a lot when knitting, or just sampling new ideas. For a fun pattern like this, try listening to “Dance of the Hours,” by Amilcare Ponchielli. Like with the Pastoral Symphony, I can vividly picture the cartoon that accompanied this piece in the film every time I hear it, and I still think fondly of the dancing hippos, which were my favorite part as a child.

Love this pattern. As every of them from EFA, it's lovely edited and easy to follow, and the final item is stunning: simple, fun, and very wearable. I'm so grateful you continue sharing with us all these reasons to keep knitting. Thank you, team! :)

I'm still a beginner, and when one pattern proved too much for me at this time, I tried this one, using the gorgeous pearlescent "Raven" (ltd ed color). I struggled with the cabling a little bit, but once I found a cable needle that worked well for me, it has become more effortless. Chandi's videos are a goldmine in learning techniques! My scarf may not be perfect, because my knitting is still not terribly good, but this pattern + this yarn make it look amazing, and I will have friends raving about how I need to make and sell them one! (Not gonna happen, but it's fun when you're proud of something) Thanks, Chandi!
