Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2012 is out, and great day in the morning, I have two designs in there. Now, this is the first time my designs have appeared in a print magazine, so please excuse me if I gush a bit. I’ll try to keep it to a minimum.

Mawata Colossus: the Peephole block

Being part 3 of a series of tutorials for the Mawata Colossus project. The first part explains how to knit with mawata or silk hankies, and the second gives a recipe for the Picture Window block. Because mawata don’t come in a standard yarn weight and you may have your own preferences for the gauge and size of your blocks, these posts describe how I make the blocks and give guidelines on making your own. They’re more sort of recipes, rather than proper tested, tech edited patterns.
