No Roll Edge

Two Chunky Knits and a Videono roll edge

It’s that time of year again! Why do we love it? Because we can get out those favourite chunky cardies and snuggle up by the fire with cocoa (or a glass of wine) and a movie!

no roll edgeSo I’ve chosen to show you two chunkies – one hand knit pattern and one for the chunky/bulky machine. Plus as a bonus I’ve included a little video showing how I do a ‘no-roll’ edge for machine knitters. It works especially well for chunky yarns.

The Pebbles Jacket is hand knitted in Hayfield Bonus Chunky in a grey fleck. It’s knitted in garter stitch with added detail in mock cable around the waist and the cuffs. This is an interesting stitch to learn and I’ve used it a lot…very effective and feminine. Although there are no front fastenings for this jacket, they could be easily added.

So if you fancy snuggling up in this one then here’s the link to the pattern which comes in sizes XS to XXL…click here.

The New No Roll Edge

For machine knitters who have a chunky machine I designed this knitting pattern for the Sugar & Spice Jacket. The plain half was knitted in a chunky no roll edgecream boucle yarn. For the colourful half I used James C. Brett Marble in chunky. Gorgeous colour combinations in this yarn!

You’ll notice that I have knitted the edging to both halves in the James Brett yarn. This was done using my new ‘no roll’ edge technique. If you ever got to read my article in Machine Knitting Monthly about this you will know how I came across this method!

But if not, then we all know as machine knitters that this is golden! That’s why I created a short video so that I could share my discovery with you. I’ve linked you to my Youtube video below and I would truly appreciate if you would subscribe to my channel. I have plans to do a new series of videos so I’ll keep you posted with that one. Hand knitters – that includes you too 🙂

Happy knitting!
