Experience Level: Adventurous Advanced Beginner
Designed with the beginner in mind. I’ve provided links to illustrations of Make 1 (M1) increases, working with double pointed needles, knitting through the back loop, the thumb method cast on, and picking up stitces. If you have bought a hard copy of the pattern, visit dummies.com and type in these techniques to gain access to the illustrations.
We turn the heat down at night at the shop, so when I come in the morning, it is cold! Also, when I’m working behind the counter, the wall behind me is an outside wall and is cold! I love having an assortment of fingerless gloves to fit my wardrobe. Also, I have to admit that I keep a pair by my bed for when it gets really cold at night.
The colors in Riva are perfect because each colorway has a range of colors. It’s like getting the toy surprise in a box of Cracker Jacks.
