Knitala Collection

For my 51st birthday I ordered a charcuterie graze board from a local business in the Nicola Valley and it came on a copper platter, to be returned after use. The pattern on the platter was the inspiration for the Knitala Collection, starting with Copper Platter and followed by I Can Knit Myself Flowers, Liberal Snowflake {I identify as one}, and Double Helix. You can’t knit just one! Consider this collection more of a recipe than a pattern and have fun with it. You will of course get all the details about how it worked out for my four samples, but depending on the yarn and needles you use you can get wildly different results. Knit knit hooray!

Construction

Each of the four Knitala patterns is knit in the round, starting at the centre.

Size

Various sizes, from 8”/20cm to 14”/35.5cm in diameter, depending on yarn and needles used.

Yarn and Yardage

I used Fingering weight yarn, 20-25 grams (0.7-0.9 oz) and 125-150 yards (114-137 metres) per Knitala. Leftovers or minis would work great! You will also need about 3-4 yards (2.75-3.5 metres) of the same yarn to mount the Knitala onto a hoop – but you can also choose to do that with a contrasting colour or even a nylon thread.

Needles and Notions

US1/2.25mm - US4/3.5mm circular needles, 32” (80 cm) length recommended for magic loop. Alternatively, you can also use a set of 5 DPNs of the same size
Cable needle (for Copper Platter and Double Helix)
Stitch markers to mark each repeat (optional), it is helpful if one marker is different to mark the beginning of round.

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
Metal hoops, various sizes. Most commonly, 10” or 12” will fit – but you can adapt the pattern to any size by using different needles and changing your gauge.

Gauge

Well, I don’t know. It depends on how much you stretch the yarn to fit onto the size of hoop you choose. As you know, yarn is magical. I know it’s sort of a nail biter, but just start and see what happens! You can always shorten the chart or keep going, or you frog and switch to a different needle. Be reckless, go for it!
