Ticker knits booklet # 3 has SIX patterns. Ticker Knits involves knitting the same word across - the overall design is that of stacked words. This capelet uses the simple word AMEN - a word I didn’t know the meaning of, so looked it up out curiosity = SO BE IT. It is worked from the top down, in-the round. The graphed words are repeated around the round and when you get to the end of the round, whether the word is complete or not, you stop and begin the next round. The seam will be mismatched but surprisingly it’s hardly discernible because the eye is looking for the words’ meanings’ more than at the design itself.

Graphs are provided for three color ways.

Valley Suoerwash DK is the perfect yarn for this project - it has distinct colors which make for great color definition and the quality of merino is superb.
