Slowest Knitting Ever

I got a wild hair this past week and decided to make a Ripple Brawlet DK in some precious Chromatic Yarns DK from my stash. I bought the pattern, skein-ed my yarn, kitted up a project bag and accessories. I was full of enthusiasm and cast-on-itis so I jumped right into the pattern. I then came to a screeching halt as the pattern called for an Old Norwegian Cast on. I don’t know how to do that one and after an hour on YouTube and complete concentration in a kid free environment…I had five stinking stitches.

I used many tutorials including the “slow” version by Very Pink Knits YouTube channel. I just couldn’t make it click with my brain and my hands. I really want to start this project so I think I’m going to use an alternate cast on that is also stretchy. I will learn the Old Norwegian Cast on someday….today is just not that day!

Happy Knitting!!

  1. I watched a class given by Ann Budd on Craftsy. She showed a number of different techniques for casting on. I wonder if you could find her on You Tube. I love the yarn!

  2. I think I did the exactly same thing you did for my first Ripple Bralette that I did in fingering yarn – because that over 300+st was just… no lol! But I tried again when I knit the DK version and I do think it was worth it!
