Interlock

Pssst, mailing list folks, go check your email…

This is what happens when you finally acknowledge that every time you knit a cable, you secretly want to take a marker to some of the strands and color them in. Now let me say up front that you shouldn’t do that. It goes poorly. Very poorly.  The idea is good…but you need to do it with yarn instead of markers.  And Interlock shows you how to do exactly that.

All you’re doing is holding a contrast yarn alongside your regular yarn for some of your stitches.  No really, that’s all there is to it.  If you can grab a second strand of yarn and knit basic cables, you can do this.

The pattern lays it all out in alarming detail (because of course it does, you know what to expect from me at this point).  But it’s really not hard.  I even included a variation with some extra colors if you’re feeling like doing a bit of experimenting!

But really, this is fun.  It’s a marvelous distraction from all the real world.  And I think you’re going to do some amazing things with it!

Once again, the pattern is Interlock, and if you’re on the mailing list, you should totally go check your email (if you’re not on the mailing list and suddenly kind of wishing you were, go over to the ravelry page and get that sorted out).
