Fannette's such a fun knit; on the Knitcircus Ravelry group, people have been posting how-to videos and using all kinds of different yarns; so cool to see how different they can be. Check out the original sample, by designer Melissa Goodale in Handmaiden Sea Silk:


Duoming on Ravelry/Sandra S achieved a very different result, using Green Mountain Spinnery yarn. The laceweight wool really gives the garter ridges and lace panels crisp definition.

Beancountknitter's ombre Regia Hand-Dyed Effect yarn gives the design another new look:


An intriguing WIP….and check out the Ravelry screen in the background!

Circular cast-on, loose bind-offs and the unusual arc-design are giving our KAL knitters plenty to talk about, and people are zipping through those arcs (way faster than me).

Please feel free to join us if you'd like a fun challenge for a special yarn; the stash-dived ones are working out great! Oh, almost forgot, if you'd like to purchase fannette as part of the Summer Pattern Collection, it's right here.
