I seem to remember that there was a suggestion in MDK that Sylph could make a beautiful Ranunculus…has anyone done this? Any advice as to needle size and any modifications? how many skeins used?
Any advice would be so appreciated.

Hey Susan, my first thought would be an Advanced search on the Ranunculus projects to see if it turns up any matches for knitting with Slyph. Sorry I can’t be of any more help for you

I have done that and didn’t find anyone that posted the Sylph Ranunculus combo.
I have to admit I’m worried about the size 10 needle with this weight of yarn. I can picture it looking quite messy and uneven- I guess I will have to do a dreaded swatch!!!
Thanks for the reply.

Do let us know if you swatch. Ranunculus + Sylph has been on my dream knits list for a long while.

Have I ever swatched? No!

There is a pic on magpie knits on face book. Looks like a fun combo.


Sooooo, I dove in to the Sylph/Ranunculus pool! Did a swatch and went down to a size 9 needle becuz it looked so sloppy. The initial cast on and rounds weren’t fun but now I’m in a groove. Will report as I go along.

Pls post pics too!

You may want to do a bit of “block as you go” on this. A gauge that loose can go rogue pretty quickly and without warning. It’s a beautiful sweater and Sylph seems like it would be dream date for it. I’m really looking forward to seeing your progress.
