New Pattern Available: Moontrimmer
Finished Measurements and Yarn Requirements will vary based on your yarn & needle selection as well as chosen number of Body Chart repeats. As a general guide I offer the following:
Sizes / Blocked Dimensions:
Small: (7 body chart repeats) 54” wide x 23” deep
Large: (10 body chart repeats) 75” wide x 31” deep
Small: Approximately 490 yards of fingering weight
Large: Approximately 980 yards of fingering weight
Shown in Fino (color: 419 Brass Button) by Manos del Uruguay (490 yards/448 meters per 100g – fingering weight – 70% Merino, 30% Silk)
Needles: Size 4 (3.5mm) 40-47” circular needles
Note: For cast on and setup, I prefer to work on either short straights or DPN’s. It provides more control and less clutter, allowing you to establish your setup with more stability.
Supplies: Cable needle, tapestry needle for weaving in ends, and row counter may be helpful.
Gauge: Approximately 24 sts in pattern = 4” (10cm). Your gauge will vary depending on your yarn and needle choice.
