I knit tin hats and write knitting patterns as my full time job. I recently graduated with a Masters degree in Applied Physics in 2010 but most of my time is spent keeping my five year and ten year olds from swinging from the chandelier and my husband distracted from the constant influx of new yarn
I am classically trained in physics, mathematics and computer science but nothing sparks my creativity like knitting. Knitting, designing, number crunching, pattern writing and publishing fulfills me in a way that cubicle life never did.
Fickle Knitter patterns specialize in designs that use one skein of luxury yarn. All of my patterns are tested and edited before self publishing.
Flambe One Skein Shawl knits up quickly with only one skein of sock yarn! It uses 321 yards of new Tilli Tomas Artisan Sock and a size US 7/4.5 mm needle. The pattern is knit as a traditional triangle, starting with a few stitches and increasing out from the center to the edge. Flambe One Skein Shawl has a knit-on border which means it's not necessary to bind off 200+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 17 stitches and a k2tog with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch.
The pattern includes written instructions as well as charts. It has been test knit and tech edited and is presented in a clear manner. This is a beginner level lace triangle pattern.
Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.
