Rock Island designed by Jared Flood (Brooklyntweed)

Kerry's picture

Just off the blocking wires is this triangular shawl designed by Jared Flood. I used 4 strands of ColourMart cashmere/linen 40/60 2/62NM very fine laceweight, the colour is lapisazzulo and the needle was a 4mm circular with wooden tips. The size was 127cm x 94cm (50" x 37") The edging was knitted first and then stitches picked up to knit the body of the shawl. The pattern was a delight to knit as Jared writes clear, accurate, and easy to follow directions. I enjoyed knitting this and will probably knit it again in laceweight merino.

Very lovely, Kerry. I think it knit up beautifully...4 strands, eh? The one strand must be as fine as sewing thread.

Kerry, it's lovely!
...did colourmark ply 4 strands together for you...or did you knit with four seperate strands?

Thanks Bill. I asked

Thanks Bill. I asked ColourMart to run two strands together for me but that was still so fine I wound some off the cone and ran that together with the two on the cone. They would have wound four for me, I just didn't realise how fine the yarn was.

I've swatched and washed a sample with four strands of assorted charcoal grey cashmere and merino. It's heavier than what you're using...
I plan to knit zippered cardigan with lapels...sort of a knitted sport coat.
I don't yet fully understand the "twist" system o jut ordered individual cones.

As I understand the twist

As I understand the twist system, it is just x number of strands wound together as distinct from plying. Twisting is free and plying has a charge.
