The knitters at Abundant Yarn Online, Linda Lynn and Hannah Cuviello, are going to use this space to share what’s on our needles (and hooks). These two squares from the Great American Kid’s Afghan book are very interesting and use two more embellishing techniques: I-cord and embroidery. If you’ve never tried I-cord, you’ll be surprised how easy it is and how useful! Designer Edie Eckman compares it to the "knitting knobby” she used as a child. The other square features freeform embroidery. The lattice cables are worked from bobbins in a contrasting color. The embroidery is added afterwards with a tapestry needle, using embroidery techniques: lazy daisy, straight stitch, stem stitch, buillion (that works especially well in yarn). Let your imagination take over.
