Wooly Manta Ray


I knit this colourful version of the linen Manta Ray pattern in our Organic Merino Worsted and because my needles were too short I couldn't tell how big it was turning out or what it was really looking like. This is me totally flabbergasted by how much I love it and that's even before I had sewn in the ends and blocked it. Check out the videos on my Instagram Stories highlight to see my reaction to wearing it for the first time. I'm in ❤️! Come see it in person at @knitcitycanada

More on this in a future post, but for now I’ll note that if I were to do this again I would change the cast on method to be the kind where you cast on 3, knit 6 rows and then pick up stitches along two sides before continuing to the pattern as written.

I used 6 different Everlea Colourways and I think in the future I’ll write this version of the pattern and create knitting kits.
