Dec 1st 2015 KAL Day 1

Everyday rows will be sent via an email, I will be "Replying" to the first email so all of the rows will be on one email at the end of the KAL.  If you are a "Special Notice" member, you will need to get your rows for day 2 through final from our blog or checking our site for the "updated" emails. Yahoo doesn't provide for "reply" messages to be sent to the Special Notice members.
If you need help, check
How to Knit | for any assistance or write an email to the group for help.  For day 1 and day 2 of rows, I will post photos.

Using Lifelines will help with any project. If you aren't sure what that is, there is plenty of info on the Internet about it but it is basically where you put thread or thin yarn through a row already worked, designating that all the rows to that point are error free.
You should document what row you put the lifeline in so you have a point of reference. If you make any error after that point, you know you are OK with the previous rows anyway

This will be a lace cloth this time.


Yarn:  I recommend green, white, off white or red.
1 skein cotton yarn (Dark Christmas Green used in model)
#6 Knitting Needles

Notes:  SKP =Slip 1, Knit 1, Pass Slip Stitch Over

Sl 2, K1, P2sso = You slip two stitches, Knit 1 then pass the 2 slip stitches over, one at a time.  If it has a YO before the Sl 2 instructions, you would Yarn Over first.

K2Tog = Knit 2 stitches together

Size: multiple of 8 + 7 stitches.  This KAL will be a total of 37 stitches (31+6 Border = 37)

Cast on 37 stitches
