Gauge Drops Air in Treillis stitch

Trellis stitch is my new farouvite pattern. Last week, I talked about it when I showed my gauge with Maille namie is Yvette yarn. As the plaid I’m knitting is not transportable, I wanted to start a new knit project, easier to travel with. I’m using again the treillis stitch but with a thiner yarn.

My opinion on Drops Air

As I said last time with the gauge in plain knitting, I love Drops Air it’s very enjoyable to knit it and it’s quick to knit as it is recommended to knit with 5 mm needles. Here I used 6 mm needle but the result is still nice.

Circulare knitting Remake of the poncho with Drops Andes yarn

One of the knit I prefered to create for my last book named Circulare knitting is the poncho. As said in my article dedicated to my on-going projects and to do list, the picture’s book do not show it well. Actually, it was made to cover shoulders , upon a coat. With its collar very high, it protects neck and it can be wore as a hood.

Because we are sensitive to the cold in my family, when I considered Christmas gifts, I thought about this design for my Mum and my sister.

As I have a lot of yarns in my stock, I prefered to pick in it to knit this new version for my Mum. For her, I decided to make it with Drops Andes yarn. I had few ball of yarns in natural colour but not enought to make the poncho so I had a strip in beige and here is the result.

To make this version I had to adapt the pattern from the book as I used a different yarn. So what do you think about it?

Gauge Maille name is Yvette yarn in Treillis stitch

When temperature drops, the only thing I want is to slip under a plaid in my sofa in front of my TV, with a hot drink and my on-going knit project. When big yarns showed up if the net and social netiworks, I had a big crush for these xxl plaids and this winter I decided to make one.

I chose to make this plaid with Maille name is Yvette yarn sold by Kesi’art. Before starting, I made a gauge. The risk to start a this kind of project without is is thin but I wanted to see how Treillis stitch is with this yarn.
