Can you believe we’re half way now? Time for clue 5!
Updated cheat sheet chart for this week:
Clue 5 Chart
As always, if you are making one of the other colourways then Anja has Clue 5 charts for all three over on her blog.
There is a very exciting extra from Rowan this week – a video from Kate and Kaffe all about how the squares fit together to make the final colourway designs. Spoiler alert though, the video shows all the squares so if you want to keep the surprise as the rest of the KAL goes on then don’t watch!
This week’s clue is quite similar to clue 1, with Chestnut instead of Black, Rosy moved to the other end and Hazel instead of Raspberry. This is the first clue I’m not too excited about, I really like the combination of Chestnut and Rosy but otherwise the colour choices didn’t inspire me as much as some of the previous clues.
With all the squares from clues 1 to 4 now complete, I’ve started to notice that some of the colour combinations are being repeated in alternate order as we go through. For example the cast-on corners of clues 3 and 4 have the same colours but in the opposite order, so if you position them together you’ll see that the colours repeat alternately where the first stripe on clue 3 is Gold but on clue 4 it’s Hazel. Similarly the cast-off corners of clues 2 and 4 use Seville and Chestnut, again repeating in the opposite order in each square.
When you’ve completed half of your required squares for clue 5, you’ll be exactly half way through knitting all the squares. How are you feeling about the KAL at this half-way point?
