You guys remember Citron, right? Well, over the past couple of years I've received lots of requests for instructions on how to make it bigger - and I even made a bigger one myself - as well as lots of questions about how the garter tab cast on works. So I finally sat down, did some math, and decided to make it official.
Citron Grand is an update of the original Citron pattern that includes a photo tutorial of the cast on and detailed instructions (as well as yarn requirements) for up to 10 sections of Citron, and it comes in a handy pdf format.
Here with 7 sections.
The pattern is available via Ravelry (no account required) as a download for $3.
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Lace (for an original flavor Citron) in Lettuce, or Wabi Sabi Yarns Lush Lace in Peacock (pictured), 435 - 1445 yards (398 - 1321 m)
Needles: US 6 (4mm) circulars
Gauge: 24 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
Sizes available: 5 (6, 7, 8, 9, 10) section repeats
If you like Citron, you'll love Citron Grand!
A few other miscellaneous items:
* Last week I returned from a trip around the world (Literally. We flew east to get to our destination and west to get home.), so I'll have more to share about that later.
* Since I'm finally over my jet lag, I'm finally getting organized, and it looks like I'll have two more fun giveaways coming up soon!
* Yesterday, I did a guest post for Whip Up -- check it out if you'd like to hear about the not-so-glamorous parts of pattern design.
* Today is my 32nd birthday. I'm starting to feel like maybe I'd like that number to stop getting bigger every year. :)
