the sneak peak revealed
4 January 2011
It’s a hand towel. Given to my mum for Xmas. She seemed to like it, but insisted it was ‘too good’ to use as a handtowel, and so we had a brief, polite, ‘don’t-ruin-Xmas’ spat about that.
More pictures and details after the break.

Cast on 75 stitches on 4.5mm needles. Using the Chinese Waves stitch, work until it’s the right length.
Each coloured stripe is two rows, with ten rows of background colour in between.
The yarn is Twilleys of Stamford’s Cotton Freedom DK.

(unusually for colour work, the back still looks good)
