the bella pattern

Monday, July 06, 2015

I just wanted to let you know that I finally wrote up the Bella pattern in a pdf to make it easier for you to print.   It's over in the sidebar for now. (I'm trying to get all of the patterns on one page.)  Megan in New Zealand (Hi Megan!) told me she found the pattern written up here. I giggled at the description.

I seem to have quite a few emails regarding this stitch and the problems with it. For some reason our brain likes to challenge us and play tricks on us with this one.  Try to keep in mind that you will always have the same number of stitches on your needle.  And, as always, feel free to shoot me an email with any questions.

This cowl was inspired by my favorite shop.  The stitch can be a bit tricky, so make sure you follow the pattern exactly how it is written.  Sometimes our brain can play tricks on us.  Please email me if you have any problems.  I've put together a YouTube video to help here.

Materials:  2 skeins Wool of the Andes, Bulky (137 yards each.  This is wallaby.)
Needles:  Size 13US, Crochet hook.
Gauge:  4” = 1.5 pattern repeat
Finished Measurement without fringe:  40” x 14”

Pattern: Cast on 80 stitches loosely.
Row 1 :: *k2tog, yo 2x, k2tog repeat from * to end
Row 2 ::  *p1, (k1,p1) into yo, p1 repeat from * to end
Row 3 ::  k2 *sl 1, k1, psso, yo 2x, sl 1, k1, psso  repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2
Row 4 ::  p2 *p1 (k1, p1) into yo, p1  repeat from * to last 2 sts, p2

*Repeat these 4 rows until piece measures approximately 14 inches ending with row 4 of pattern repeat.  Bind off loosely.
Using extra yarn cut approximately 80 pieces of yarn measuring 11" each. Using a crochet hook, attach fringe along cast on and bind off edges. (As much or as little fringe as you'd like.)  Sew together along the side edge.   Enjoy!
