If you're anything like me then you're a diehard knitter. I take my knitting with me everywhere and I find nothing more entertaining than building something new out of a piece of string. Knitters are awesome!
I made this fun wall hanging for myself to hang over my desk. It's a silly little project that can be knit in an evening or two.
Knit Hard Banner Pattern
Ewe Ewe Yarns Pattern #126
Designed by Heather Walpole
Finished measurements: 9½" wide; 10¾" after blocking
Yarn: Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted, 95 yards,
Color A: 1 skein (70 Aquamarine)
Color B: 1 skein (25 Orange Peel)
Needles: US 8 (5 mm) knitting needles
Supplies: Darning needle to weave in ends
Gauge: 16 sts to 4" in st st after blocking.
With Color A, cast on 40 sts. Beginning with a knit row work in stockinette stitch, knitting one row and purling one row, and follow color chart adding Color B as you come to it. Bind off. Weave in all yarn ends and frame or hang to remind you to always be knitting!
Notes: The banner uses about 90 yards of the main color and about 30 yards for the text. I used a modified Fair Isle / intarsia method for the letters by carrying the yarn across when I worked the rows and then twisted it up the outside letters' edge to carry it to move it up to the next row. I did break the contrasting yarn for the space in between the two words.
