Adrienne Larson's Swirly Hat for Skacel Collection is the basis for this
pattern to see and to knit. Written for 150gm super bulky, we have 2 samples in that
super cozy gauge on a US13. It's basically a slipped stitch pattern, so like brioche
it has a thicker, bouncier hand. Below is a sample in Homestead Tweed, having
converted the pattern to a 194yds/100gm wool on a US9. This hat took about
80 grams (approximately 155 yards, depending on the humidity, direction of the wind and who's knitting etc)
You can see the super bulky free pattern (we have 4 yarns that fit)
and we're knitting one on our new superwash 5st worsted right now, and hope to have
guides/pictures/support for the smaller gauges soon.
Vintage Chunky 3-hank kid size 4 free pattern NANTASKET gansey
find this pattern at http://www.berroco.com/patterns/nantasket
An easy drop shoulder construction for sizes 2/4/6/8/10/12!
You may have noticed that we (I) changed the gansey pattern (graph paper and a little time required), and
will continue to do so (and change colors) on subsequent Nantaskets for each of the elegible children.
We used 3 heathery colors in our sample to show how beautifully they look knitted. Drop in to see,
feel, and choose from the over 2 dozen colors on hand.

||what's going on inside the ballwinder?
It's the model almost every yarn store has, and the
key word here is PLASTIC. It's a wonderful machine.
Ballwinders can last just about forever as long as we do
not attempt to make them exceed their capabilities.
Too much tension between the swift and the ballwinder is
responsible for broken teeth (red and blue gear teerh).
Too much tension is created by: winding too fast, yarn has
tangled within the hank or an end has tangled around the swift base.
The ballwinder will "bark" or crackle when there's too much
tension. THIS IS A WARNING TO STOP OR SLOW DOWN and investigate,
or you may have already broken a tooth. Too many broken teeth
and you will have to replace the ballwinder.
Keys to long life: Arrange yarn on the swift so it will wind off
without crossing over, start slowly then increase speed and slow
down at the end of the hank (when weight is all on ballwinder).
Treat it well and it'll last a lifetime.
