Kendal Mint Cake Snood....a two hour knit.
Hello there, I hope you've all had a good week. I'm back today with a really quick knit. I have been so cold this week and walking around Cardiff, I realised I haven't got a knitted scarf.
So, when I got back, I started looking for a really quick knit. I found the Kendal Mint Cake pattern over on The Wool Sanctuary.
I love Suzie Johnson patterns, she has some fun, quirky and quick knits, she taught Kirsty Allsopp to knit on Kirstie's Homemade Home.
I started it at 4.30pm on Monday evening and finished it at 6.45pm, with a couple of little breaks so probably two hours of knitting.
The pattern called for 15mm needles but the largest I had was 12mm, which worked but I just had to cast on a few more stitches, I used Rowan Big Wool, which I had in my stash, I could of got away with one ball but I wanted it a little bit bigger but I've got quite a lot left of the second ball so will make a smaller version for my 11 year old niece.
Check out other FO's over at Tami's blog.
Have a great weekend.
