I'm back with the supplies and information list for the KAL. One thing I wanted to mention is that I want this pattern to be something that you can customize to make it "perfectly you," so that is why this is a very flexible list of supplies that you will need for your shawlette. One of the things I enjoy the most about knitting is having the ability to make something that suits my tastes and personal style so I want to encourage you to take these suggestions as sort of guidelines to choosing what you like best!
Yarn: Wisdom Yarns Poems (100% Wool; 50g/1.75oz; 100m/109yds per ball), 2 balls in your selected colourway (I'm using #589) - This yarn is worsted weight and has long colour repeats similar to Noro, but you can substitute any type of yarn you would like. I think this would look great in a solid colour as well.
Needles: US 11 (8mm) 40" circulars - or any size/length that works for you. *Note: I'm a tight knitter, so I went up to the US 11 to make sure that I would get a nice drape to the fabric. (The yarn I'm using calls for a US 8 (5mm) needle to get a guage of 18 sts x 23 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch.) Choose any size of needle that will give you the fabric you want for your shawlette. I suggest doing a little test swatch with a few different sizes of needles to see which you like best. I also chose to use a 40" length because I didn't want my stitches all bunched up on the cable and I wanted to be able to see how the shape is progressing as I knit. Feel free to use whatever length of cable you are comfortable working with.
Guage: There is none!! This shawlette is completely for you to customize!! You can knit it to be as tight and cozy, or as loose and drapey as you like.
Tools: stitch markers, yarn needle, scissors, and tape measure
I think that's about it! I hope I haven't forgotten anything. I will start posting the pattern on Monday June 27th, and I'm looking forward to knitting along with you!!
Much Love, xx
P.S. In my original post I said I was using Plymouth Poems yarn when indeed it is actually Wisdom Yarns Poems!! So sorry for the mix-up!!
