As I make progress on my Ambershore Shawl I’m highly aware of my personal deadlines based on the demonstrations I have planned to film. I work well with deadlines, hence this knit-along! So, this is fun for me.
I need to knit 40 more rows before Sunday so I can film the colourwork demo, and boy am I excited to introduce my arbutus-brown to this light indigo blue.
That's 12.5 rows a day. But my goal is to get them knit by Friday so I can film the colourwork demo then. Let's see how I do.
I made some calculations and it turns out we only need to knit 4 rows per day over this 60+ day knit-along to complete the shawl!
Sure, every second row increases by 4 stitches, so our rows get longer each day, BUT I think 4 rows a day is manageable goal, don’t you?
The first video is ready!
This tutorial walks you through casting on, setting up stitch markers and knitting the first few rows of your Ambershore Shawl. It also includes tips for remembering the difference between making right and left leaning increases.
So, when you’re ready to cast on you can get cozy with a beverage and knit along with me.
