Chrysalis has been released into the world…
I love this stitch pattern because it's reminiscent of small cocoons, and cocoons are symbols of change, growth, rebirth, and springtime! Hence the pattern name, Chrysalis.
This pattern is delicate, pretty, texturally interesting, and like most of my favourite stitch patterns, it's easier than it looks.
It’s really just several rows of stockinette stitch with an occasional row of knitting trickery thrown in to keep it interesting. The pattern includes links to video tutorials demonstrating the pattern stitch, and the cast-on method used in the pattern.
Instructions are included for 5 circumferences and foot length is customizable. The stitch pattern is both written and charted (and also has a link to a video tutorial), and the pattern is needle-neutral to accommodate your preferred style for working small circumference in the round.
Spring has arrived, and Easter is just around the corner, so to celebrate Speckled Eggs is 20% off until Monday April 22, 2019 (no coupon code required) and I’ve added 3 spring/Easter-themed printable sock wrappers to the pattern. You don’t have to use them for socks, they’re also great for wrapping washcloths, mitts, slippers, and other small knitted gifts. You can find the pattern here.
