I had some beautiful silk and wool yarn blend that I decided to make a tuck lace shawl out of on my brother KX350 knitting machine. I used 60 needles and started with an E wrap and did the first 10 rows plain then for the tuck lace stitch I put on hold every third needle and did three passes then three passes off hold. I set the tension dial to 5. The length is 526 rows. Then I wet blocked it overnight. I noticed when I blocked it there were a few places on the edges that the needles did not pick up fully so I had to make some minor repairs. Overall I think it turned out OK.
I was able to make this very basic and easy winter hat with a pom-pom and it only took about 45 minutes. I used lion Brand yarn wool ease thick and quick. I also found this video tutorial on YouTube that gave me the basics on how to create the hat. You could really make a lot of these in one weekend and they would make great Christmas gifts.
I’m finally getting around to posting his finished scarf. This is from one huge hank of bamboo wrapped wool yarn I got from the Fibre Studio Shop in Charlotte NC. I think it was 720 yds. I can’t find the label but remember it was five ply sport weight. The yarn was a little difficult to work with at first but I got use to it.
