Kudzu by the Numbers

My latest pattern, Kudzu, has gotten a lot of positive attention on Ravelry!  Today, it hit 1000 favorites, making it by far my most popular pattern today. There are already 26 projects, including many from two separate knit-a-longs (more on that Wednesday).

In honor of hitting that milestone, I give you (as requested) a row-by-row stitch count for both the full and midi length of the shawlette.

Please note: these stitch counts are for AFTER the row(s) are complete.

  1. thanks a lot for this. I am a new knitter and badly wanted to knit kudzu after i saw that in ravelry. This will help me a lot.

    1. Hi there! I’m sorry I didn’t answer you sooner (we were away on vacation).

      Can you ask a little more about what is confusing to you about the “wrap 1 over 2” stitch? I’ll copy the text from the pattern here for reference:

      wrap 1 over 2: Knit 3 sts, then slip the third st on the RH needle over the first 2 sts.

      Basically, it is a decrease, worked over three stitches. You start with three sts on the left needle — let’s label them like this: CBA. You knit each one — now they are on the right needle, in the same order : CBA. Carefully insert your left needle into stitch A, and lift it up and over B and C and off the right needle. Stitch A is now wrapped around stitches B and C.

  2. Hi

    What a pretty Pattern I can’t wait to start. But, I have a question about the The pattern sizes. On page 4 in the From the designer notes the second paragraph, it reads like there might be actually 3 sizes for this shawl. But I only see 2 cast on Sizes. Is there another size?

    Thanks very much,

    Lisa

    1. The pattern only has two lengths — full and midi. Sorry for the confusion — I can see how you might interpret it differently.

      In reality, you can do almost any length you like. You can cast on any multiple of 5, plus 3 — so you could do 18 sts (a nice size for a swatch) or 53 or 153 or 203 etc.

  3. I would like the maker of this pattern so i can send share how to make the leaf pattern in to a triangular shawl
