    While bias knitting is particularly suited to variegated yarn, Lamitra’s eyelet rows set against a smooth stocking stitch ground are equally eye-catching in a solid. The full gathers at the crown only add to the spiral effect.

    Four sizes are provided, along with illustrated tutorials for the provisional cast-on, Kitchener stitch and short rows.

    Skills required: 
Knit & purl sts, short rows (w&t), provisional cast-on, kitchener stitch, basic lace (eyelets)

34 sts x 46 rows to 4in/10cm on 2.5mm needles over St.St.

    Fit is determined by row gauge – if your gauge differs, work more or fewer panels to achieve fit.
