I’m using the Blue kit. My chart only has 7 colors instead of the 10 in the other one. Can someone please tell me which one is the B color? I’m thinking the Violet Fields is the A color, right?
For the blue kit, color A is Turquoise Depths and color B is Dynamite Blue
Hopefully you can get the gist of the pattern and can play around with some color on knitters graph paper! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
I cannot wait to see your beach palette!

Some people are using lighter weight stash yarn with multiple strands. That might caus the confusion.
Here’s what my project looks like on the front and back.
My color A is dark charcoal and color B is purple. I wanted a wider border so I decided to knit 3 rows with the dark charcoal before beginning the color work pattern. These three rows were knit with two separate strands of the same color, dark charcoal, but knit two handed as if I was knitting the stranded pattern. You can see the floats on the back side. ![IMG_5428 2.HEIC|375x500](upload:
(Also, I used a provisional cast on so I can bind off in a way that will hopefully further prevent the flare!)
I thought I understood until I saw this chart. How can the edge stitch be away from the cut? Doesn’t the cut create two edges?
I did the same thing! But I knew it was just for practice to see if my hands can manage big needles. I’m so used to starting at the bottom right of a chart, that must be why.
Will the tightness of my stitches make a huge difference when I felt? I did just start so they may get tighter (mine seem to some times). Should I just start over and try and make them tighter? Obviously my first time felting! Thanks!
Thank you! I think the first 5 stitches being brown threw me off, still don’t get that, but I can follow a chart, so again Thank you!!
@Corey posted about knitting hers inside out, which puts the floats on the outside of the circle thus creating a looser tension.
I am so bummed that I missed the Zoom call yesterday. Was it recorded? Any way I can watch it? WE are doing a remodel and sometimes my timing is just off . . .
I realize I have done multiple things different from the pattern directions but think it will all work out in the wash. I now understand the steek bit a bit better and will try it out when I start the second set of the charts. I think duplicate stitch solves a few booboos here and there.
P.S. Also a bit envious of all the snow y’all are enjoying.
yes that’s me too on starting at bottom right - i completely blew by the Chart I and Chart II notation! I think it will work out OK though!
Looks really beautiful!!
Oh – one more thing – I tried to print out the chart for the steek and accidentally printed out the whole conversation – so save yourself some ink if you want to get the chart. (I go to the school of hard knocks).
I got mine started last night but didn’t get far. You are all inspiring me to get going. It’s a snow day here in the Hudson Valley so plenty of time to knit.
Nellknits is doubling worsted for some of her colors, so yes!
