Fantasia is a really interesting project to make as the intricate drop stitch pattern is easier than it looks. Fantasia is knitted on circular needles so every round is RS round. The bulk of the instructions are displayed on a graph, but there is a written stitch pattern as an aid to clarity. When following the chart, grey squares are representing sts yet to be made by the two yarn over stitches at the centre of the pattern.
Fantasia makes a great set with Alexis and is an ideal test piece before embarking on knitting Lillian. Fantasia also makes a great Christmas present idea?
I’m delighted to tell you that I challenged myself to knit Fantasia using the chart alone, and I succeeded – I’m proud to wear it every day as it is so warm and stylish. Kate M
