Bunchalong 2018: The Great Bunchening!


#1

Greetings, honey bunches of knitters!

Here is the spot where we are going to be posting our Bunchalong progress photos! Feel free to start any time, but the first weekly prize-awarding will be on October 8, one week into the Bunchalong.


Love the Appleseed Mitt pattern!
#2

3 Appleseed Coasters finished (2 given as just cause gifts). The one on needles just needs ends worked in. No. 5 was started last night. All out of leftover dish cloth cotton.


#3

Coasters + dishcloth cotton = perfect match!


#4

I’ve got the wool for the mitts. Just waiting for less heat/humidity to get going.


#5

Count me in! I’m ordering my Little Golden Book of Merry Making today!


#6

I love the idea of these in cotton - though in my house they might end up being used as mini dishcloths!


#7

Every time you say Little Golden Books I smile…and thank you dear Karen! I know you have a lot of square wrangling to do.


#8

Wait until you see them! They’re fantastic!!!


#9

Hello. Everyone I am new to MDK. This looks like fun. Just ordered my book.


#10

Welcome to the neighborhood. Enjoy,

I got my ebook yesterday and cast on a coaster/washcloth this morning. There was a brand new cone of white cotton sitting right in front of me so you really can’t blame me. I went a little rogue and added six more stitches to the cast on so it will be a little bit bigger.


#12

Welcome! It’s fun here!


#13

You do you, Karen. It will still be a diminutive washcloth. I might do this since my Windham is still making its way northerlywards.


#14

I’m having trouble with the cables on the coaster pattern. A knitter on Ravelry says there is an error on row 5 of the cable pattern…seems to me that row 5 has an extra p2. Anyone? I would love to see a video or some photos of the cable stitch. I’ve done cables before but this one is stumping me.


#16

Thanks Susan, there is indeed an error in the pattern.

Row 5 should read:

Page 20, under Cable Pattern, Row 5 should be written as follows:

K1-tbl, k1, p1, k1, *p2, 1/2/1 RPT; repeat from * to last 3 sts, p1, k1, k1-tbl.

(The k1 that was missing is in bold.)


#17

Thanks, Kay. So that’s pretty much a whole different Row 5, according to my book…I’m going to try it again tonight and see if I can make it work.


#18

There was a missing K1 right after the K1-tbl, and that makes all the difference.


#19

Hi Everyone!
I’m a newbie here and can not wait to jump in Need to go order Merry Making Field Guide now.


#20

Welcome to the party.


#21

This is from my notes on the Coaster pattern:
Row 5: K1tbl, k1, p1, k1, p2, *1/2/1RPT, p2, repeat from * to last 7 sts, 1/2/1 RPT, p1, k1, k1tbl.

I just reknit it to confirm that this is correct, and I’m sorry that I missed it in the proof before printing.
