Invitation for a KAL for the Hemlock Ring
***UPDATED*** MAY 24, 2008***PLEASE READ FIRST***
I have attatched the written out and extended version of this pattern that Mary worked on and I wrote it out line by line. PLEASE download this pattern if you like written instructions and it follows Jared's original design!
Please look for post #239 that is where the pdf file is.
Hi All,
Wanted to send out an invite to all of you knitters out there that may want to KAL with a few of us. Below are some links for the patterns and finished product. There has been some interest by some of you on a few of the other forums.
I am not an advanced knitter by far, more on the beginner/intermediate. So, I think that if there are any advanced beginners out there and have knitted a feather and fan lace scarf or the sort, now is you chance to step up to the plate and "DO IT" :D I think that I am up for the challenge and there have been some great advanced knitters who are willing to help us novices. Thanks M... :D
Also, if anyone is interested, the yarn that was used is Cascade Ecological Wool. Yarn.com is having a HUGE sale on quite a few yarns from different vendors. And the eco wool is on sale. Regularly 15.00 per 478 yd hank on sale now for 10.49. They have a pretty good assortment of colors.
So I think that it's fate, someone wants me to knit this. LOL

So, let us know if you'd like to join our KAL and soon we'll have a great piece to show off to everyone.

Cheers All!

Cool Mary and thanks for all of your help so far. I haven't started yet, but I will be posting some progressive photos on here to show everyone that even "I" the advanced beginner can do this. Which means pretty much EVERYONE can do this. LOL

It is a beautiful blanket, I am not sure I can start another project just yet. have joined the yahoo group though and got the pattern. will definitely be on my to do list.

Am I right in thinking you have to follow the original pattern until you hit row 47 and then follow the additional chart of fan and feathers.

Have read a few of the post on the yahoo group and it seems to be a relative quick knit, some people got it done in a month or two which I think is pretty fast.

Will be keeping an eye on this KAL, hope to see lots of pictures.

Hi Karina,
Yes, you are correct, you need to follow the written directions from the original pattern and then move onto the chart. So you don't finish the written pattern and then go to the chart.
Yes, can't wait to get my supplies and start. Hopefully by this weekend. I did a sample to see if I could actually do the DPN's and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
Good luck and will be posting as I start to do it.

So I decided to try out a few rows on my first try on DPN's. I just decided to try it out on some yarn that I had.
I made it through 35 rows with no problems and it looks pretty good. I decided to stop since it's not the yarn that I wanted to make this in.
I am not receiving my yarn till mid next week and can't wait to start.
Will be posting more pics in the actual yarn, once I get them on my needles. And try to do pics as I am knitting. I am not the best knitter and maybe Mary will post some of her pics on here. (since I am sure that she knits WAAAAAAAAAY better than myself)
Cheers and have a great weekend all!
I had to do a few different posts to put them up since there is an upload limit.

looks pretty good. Seems a shame to just rip it out. could you not just make it into a cushion cover or something. Are you using the Eco wool, is that equivalent to UK aran or chunky?

I'm in. I just ordered the yarn a few days ago, so it should be here soon. I've got lots of birthdays coming and will be knitting other projects along with this one, but slow and steady wins the race right? Looking forward to getting started!
