Just heard from Louise (Scollay!) and Isla that the sign-up thread for the Scollay KAL is now OPEN. Isla has a special 10% discount on all DK weight yarn from Monday 15th June until midnight Sunday 28th June - use the discount code scollaykaldk15
The original sample was knitted in New Lanark DK - a rustic yarn spun just down the road from me. If you want to substitute with another yarn, I recommend DK yarns with a touch of character. The cardigan is mostly worked in reverse stocking stitch with subtle lace details, so you'll want something that'll look nice with a tiny bit of texture but not obscure the lace. Also keep in mind that the cardigan has a seamless construction - this means that the yarn does all the 'heavy lifting', so stay clear of yarns with a lot of drape or no memory. Finally, the pattern contains hints on modifying the fit, but I am sure Louise Scollay will be talking a lot more about fit in the coming months.
Whoop. I am really excited about this KAL - it is going to be so much fun seeing everybody's colour, yarn and BUTTON choices.
Now back to editing the Mahy shawl..
