It's time for Clue 4 of the OUAT MKAL, we're over half way there! For those of you that guessed that we would be joining in the round, you were totally right! In this section of the cowl, after joining in the round and purling a row, you will be switching to star stitch. This continues the same texture from the mitts for a nice matching set. I know this stitch can be a little hard on the hands, and if you find that you are having trouble, you may want to go up a needle size for this section. Also, try and keep your stitches as loose as possible because that will help! I know some people insert the needle into the 3 stitches to be knit together purl-wise, and then pull on the stitches a bit to loosen them before doing the stitch. It is an extra step but it may be worth the time and effort to save your hands! If you find that you really don’t want to do star stitch than you can just keep doing the woven stitch from the first clue. It will still look nice with your mitts, and be much easier on the hands!
How is everyone liking how the Frozen characters are fitting into the Once Upon A Time plot so far? I am finding that I am really enjoying it and I am very intrigued to find out what happened to Anna and what the story is with the crazy snow queen! It is nice to have some fresh characters introduced into Storybrook and I'm excited to see how the story unfolds!
I found these comparison images between the movie and the OUAT characters. I think they did a pretty good job with the casting! What do you think?
It's not to late to join in the fun! You can get the Frozen Upon a Time yarn from JBW and the OUAT MKAL pattern from Ravelry and easily catch up. Happy knitting everyone, and don't forget to head over to my Etsy shop and check out my line of hand dyed yarn!
