Now I’ve just got to wait until the designers get their patterns in to me. This yarn is soon to be Jennifer Dassau‘s new pattern for the collection. And it’s AMAZING! Sneak peeks soon!

Nachtfalter KAL Week 4: More Lace

Check out last week’s lace:

The lace pattern looks gorgeous! I found it totally addictive, and I think some of you did, too. Everyone is moving right along!

This Week’s Nachtfalter Goal: Finish the front of the sweater.

This week, knit the remainder of the lace repeats for the front of the sweater, and then finish the front with garter stitch and bind off for the neck, holding the shoulder stitches on stitch holders.

There is a small error with the stitch counts for binding off at the neck, and here is the corrected row:

“Next row (RS): K 35 (44, 45, 49, 56) sts, bind off 50 (50, 54, 58, 62) sts, k rem 34 (43, 44, 48, 55) sts.”

This is a great time to try on your sweater and see how it’s going! Hold up the top and see if you like the ease. Stefanie designed a top that’s supposed to slouch over the fitted waistband, and the two samples have different amounts of slouchy-ness. If you want less slouchy-ness (like the chartreuse sample), do fewer lace repeats. If you want more slouchy (like the blue and red sample), do more!

Post your pictures, chat and ask questions in the Ravelry Forum, or email me at katie@hollaknits.com.

Happy Knitting!

Meeting Point KAL Week 4: Make the Front!

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to any of you! Since we finished the Back of Meeting Point last week, we are moving on to the Front this week.

My Back is looking good, right?! It’s actually starting to look like a sweater around here!

This week’s Meeting Point Goal: Start and finish the Front of Meeting Point. We’ve already got the armholes held, so all you need to do is put your held Front stitches back on your needles and start following your Front chart. The front is shorter than the back, so you’ve only got 57 (59, 61, 61) rows to work through this week. Pretty nice!

Nothing tricky this week, ladies! So have fun and happy knitting!
