Next Up KAL: Spot Weaving

Hi {!name_fix} - Our next Beyond BOBBOL Learn-and-Knit-A-Long is going way beyond lace and beads to try new things in another area. I call it “spot weaving” because the stitch pattern looks like … well, spots of color (sort of like beads) against a background color.

Since the Spot Woven Stitch produces a dense, non-stretchy fabric, it is ideal for items like dishcloths, hot pads, placemats, rugs, pocketbooks, etc. I’ve even used it for hard-wearing, cushiony heels on socks. (stay tuned for the story on that!)

To tempt you, I have designed the Spot Woven Dishcloth learning project. The instructions page for this project will be available for FREE to all members.

You can check the Next Up KAL page for featured techniques for this project, shopping list and pattern availability PLUS a Bonus Pattern offer beginning September 5th!. (Note: Premium members can get free Ravelry delivery of the bonus pattern now.)

Ellen C. wrote about the August KAL: " Thank you Jackie! I enjoyed mixing a cable with lace - I got to learn and end up with an ‘amaizing’ scarf! "

You've got to see Ellen's Maizy Crazy. Aren't the colors lovely?!
