Coco Knits Patterns, Knitted Nest Description
Have fun experimenting with your stash, you might knit an entire vertical garden! Skills Needed General knitting skills. Sizes One size – approx: height: 3"; diameter: 1.5" Materials Suggested Yarns 1 skein Habu AOS-34 Ami-ito Fishnet Linen (made from old Indonesian fishing nets, 100% linen with persimmon tannin, 27 yd/oz) Note: This yarn is not easy to work with, but the nests are small so you won’t suffer for long! The little knots that once made up the fishing net get caught in your knitting so don’t even attempt an even st gauge, just have fun with the resulting organic shape. Needles US #6–8 dpns or circ needles using magic loop method (see www.knittinghelp.com for a video of magic loop). Smaller needles will yield smaller nest, bigger needles will yield a larger, looser nest. Gauge Not important!
