Laura Aylor Flame Nettle $5.00

Untitled 2

The color work in Laura Aylor's cowl Flame Nettle was inspired by a particularly lovely coleus plant. A lining hides the floats and makes it extra warm and cozy, but could be omitted if desired. Variegated yarns can be a lot of fun in this pattern!

Knit with two colors of bulky yarn in the round with a garter stitch bottom edge, stranded colorwork in the middle, and ribbing at the top. Once the outside is complete the lining is knit.

Approximate yardage:
Main color (bulky weight) - 100 yards
Contrasting color (bulky weight) - 50 yards
Lining (dk weight) - 100 yards

Samples were knit in Plucky Bulky and madelinetosh Bulky (both 100% merino) with liners in Knit Picks Capra, a merino cashmere blend.

An additional circular needle is used to hold the live lining stitches while they are being tacked down. It should be longer than the 16 needles used for knitting both layers and it can be a smaller gauge.
