Yay, a new knitting project! I liked my gray Viajante so much I decided to make another one, this time in bright red. I think more might follow, in other beautiful colors.
I used Regia 4-ply sock yarn. It’s 75% wool, 25% nylon. On size 6 (4mm) needles, it works up to a lovely drape. Sock yarn rocks!
At one point I had to unravel a bunch of rounds because I had started the mesh lace too late, with too little yarn left. Unraveling allowed me to have a nice wide border around the bottom.
The whole thing takes just under 200g of yarn and knits up really easily. I mean, it’s mostly the knit stitch. You start with garter stitch, knitting back and forth. Then you join it in the round, and just knit knit knit (and increase/decrease as needed) until you’re done. It makes for perfect quiet evenings. And once I figured out I could watch my Craftsy classes while knitting, things got even more perfect. Creating and learning at the same time – win!
And that’s all I have right now. Next up, a dress. See you then!
