Camilla Kauni Effekt Handbag

This lovely handbag is ideal for left over yarn from a previous project, as it uses 50g and 85g of Effekt yarn, and makes a nice accessory to your garment.

This pattern can be bought seperately and does not need a yarn purchase.

Sizes:

One size

 

Finished measurements, approximately:

Height: 16 cm

Width: 26 cm

Depth: 4 cm

Strap length: 120 cm

 

Required yarn:

Colour A (EL):  55g

Colour B (EZ):  85g

 

Knitting needles:

Tension:

On 4 mm needles 22sts x 46rows in garter stitch gives 10x10 cm unfelted.

 

General:

The bag is knitted in garter stitch on a larger than usual needle to ensure that the felting process results in a firm, thick fabric. The colour is alternated every 8 rows.

RAPLA RIPPLE SWEATER

A beautiful feather and fan sweater by Anna Verschik for SKD Yarns. This elegant design is seamless and top-down with set-in sleeves. You can try it on as you go to ensure the perfect fit (in fact, this is highly recommended!!!).

This pattern is only available to purchase with the required amount of main colour Kauni Yarn.

Yarn: Kauni 8/2 (100 g/400 m), 100 % wool.

 

Needles: 3.5 mm (I recommend several pairs of circular needles in order to be able to try the garment on as you go; you can use either DPNs or short circular needles for sleeves).

 

Gauge (slightly stretched in the width): 13 sts x 8 rows in the pattern (Chart 1a, size S, L) = 8 cm   x 2.5 cm; 15 sts x 8 rows in the pattern (Chart 1b, size M, XL) = 9 cm x 2.5 cm.

 

Please note that this gauge is only achievable using the same or similar wool yarn as for the sample. Kauni is a yarn with loose twist and knits up differently than for example tightly spun merino yarns.

 

The sweater has some negative ease
