Calling all KNITTERS, novice and experienced ... we're going to first start off with a quick project that is simple, fun and addicting..... also known as a .... .
Quickie Knitty Plarn-Along
Just in case you're wondering what a Plarn Poppy Flower would look like - here are
2 plarn-tastic versions.
Picture to the left made with orange plarn.
Picture to the right made with Walmart green produce bag and a pop tab instead of a button.
2 plastic bags
1 button or pop/pull tab (your choice)
Pair of Knitting needles .. a direct quote from Bev's blog:
"I used some US size 4 double-pointed ones, because they were the first things I picked up. Gauge isn't really important, so use whatever you like/have in front of you."
Cast on 28 stitches
Rows 1-4: Knit on odd rows, purl on even rows.
Row 5: Knit 2 stitches together to end (14 stitches).
Row 6: Purl to end.
Row 7: Knit 2 stitches together to end (7 stitches).
Row 8: Purl to end.
Row 9: Knit 2 stitches together, knit remaining stitch
With needle, thread tail end of yarn through live stitches, pull tight and secure. Sew the two sides together to make a circle. Sew button or pop tab to front.
DON'T FORGET to send me pictures of your finished flower so I can show it off ... the best part of a Recycled Yarn-Along is showing off what you made!!!
Please help me show Bev our appreciation by leaving a thank you comment on her blog for letting us use her Poppy Flower design for the Quickie Knitty Plarn-Along.
