I've been asked about TENSION several times so here is the tension you need for the Carousel
US terms, 20dc = 4.75"/12cms and 2 rows of dc = 1"/2.5cms.
Hope this helps those who have loose or tight stitches
Over the last couple of weeks several Carousel groupies have decided they want to do their own thing and have picked their own colours...to fit into their rooms, for a new baby, just wanted something different....Love them all x
cant wait to see all these wonderful creations grow...
HERE ARE A FEW OF MY OWN SUGGESTIONS TOO
Special dk and Batik.
PART 1: 6 colours in order of use for the first part of the Carousel cal:
Batik: Cherry, Old Gold, Indigo, Coral, Teal, Biscuit, Old Gold, Coral, Indigo, Cherry.
Special:Lipstick, Mustard, Aster, Spice, Turquoise, Citron, Mustard, Spice, Aster, Lipstick.
NEW EXTRA SPECIAL PACK:

Option 2: Extra Special marl yarn in Greengage/waterfall

BATIK/SPECIAL alternatives as close as can be matched and I Know there are lots more options that you all plan to experiment with
