There is something rewarding about knitting a long tube of bulky yarn. It’s fast work—a way to dip into stranded knitting in the most forgiving way possible.
Felting in the washing machine utterly transforms the piece. Then, you cut a quick and painless steek and apply the most minimal of edgings. The result: a cushy, colorful mat that will make getting out of bed a warm and pleasant experience.
Don’t let the word steek scare you. It’s foolproof. The stitches cannot unravel, because they are felted together. If you can cut a straight line, you can do this.
The name is a tribute to the knitting friends who introduced us to this simple stranded stitch pattern, Kiki Hall and Mariko Fujinaka
