So, you know, if a skein has 106 yards and the project uses less than one skein, you can probably knit it in an evening. I even added extra repeats to make mine a little longer and I still finished in one evening. Don't look too closely because one side has an extra repeat. I decided it didn't matter.
I made this Mermaid by Anne Kuo Lukito out of O-wool Balance Bulky, a lovely combination of organic wool and cotton. I soaked my in Eucalan and then dried it in the dryer until it was just a little damp to bring out the softness of the cotton. Then I laid it out with the "tail" fanned out to dry completely. It would also be wonderful in Misti Alpaca Chunky or Spud and Chloe Outer.
It's a very clever design. You start with a provisional cast on, so that each side is knit starting at the back of the neck. I love the cable twists on the edge and the way that the "tails" fan out.
We have the single patterns available at the store. Or if you have a copy of the Luxury Yarn 101 One Skein Wonders, you'll find the pattern in there.
So find a comfortable chair, queue up your favorite podcast and start knitting.
