Tie One On - Variations on a Theme

April 7, 2005 in Project - Knitty Submission | Permalink


Hi Nona,

I can't seem to find the Bouton D'or Flash needed for the mellow version of Tie One On. Do you know where I can get my hands on this or can you recommend a substitute? Thanks!

Nona, a great pattern! Very versatile - I can see making it in various materials and weights for different seasons. Brava!

Not only am I going to make one of those for a wedding wrap, but I am enjoying your blog very much too. So much I am going to keep reading it. You are doing a very good work here!

congratulations! beautiful pattern! so many cool variations.

Peek-a boo. I see you!
At least, I hope the model in blue is you. It's been a bit unnerving, knitting and blog-commenting with a headless lady.
The Tie One On's are gorgeous.

Hi Nona! What a lovely pattern. I can't wait to make one. :)

Congratulations! I think it is lovely. And also, thanks for the short rows experiments ... they are very inspiring!

This is the first wrap/shawl I've seen that I could wear without looking over-the-top! I love that the pattern is so versatile, and that it's both practical *and* pretty. Thanks so much!

Very nice pattern and it was a fun Knitty. I see you have a Nothin' but KAL. I have the yarn and thought I'd start this week. Is there anything or any place I need to go to join. Love your blog, too. Never been here before and I see you took a Lucy Neatby class. She was here some time ago and I too learned (and love and use) Japanese Short Rows. Nice blog...I'll be visiting more often.

I love Tie One On. It's the first shawl/wrap thingie I feel I can wear without looking stupid. Thanks for a great design. I am still anxiously waiting for the Japanese short row variation.

Posted by: Hope | Apr 7, 2005 1:52:48 PM

Yes, I'll definitely tie one on!

Hi. I just saw this pattern on Knitty. It's lovely! I love how you developed it for various skill levels and the photos with three ages (generations?) of women were inspiring! You don't see that sort of thing in a print magazine much... gotta love Knitty! Thank you for choosing to display your designs that way.

How exciting to be published and on Front Cover no-less! I love the look, the photo, and the great gift-knit idea! Bravo!!

Congrats! It is a lovely pattern, especially for people like me who absolutely do not know how to wear a shawl stylishly - the wrap part secured with a brooch should keep it on. And the most fun part - Nona revealed! You look good in baby blue.

Ah, we're treated to a nona-near-profile in addition to a great pattern. Congratulations! It's a great pattern.

What a lovely design. No blocking right? IF I make it I dont have to block it right?right?

Proud proud to know you!

This will be the perfect birthday gift to knit for my Nana! I just ordered the yarn for the piquant version. I'll be using the same shade of Kidsilk. Thank you so much for a great pattern!

Beautiful, Nona!

Posted by: Jenny | Apr 7, 2005 10:55:17 PM

-Is it really you in the blue? I thought it was you wearing the pink one? Come on and tell us nona :-)
Congratulations on the publishing!

I love it, what a great idea!

Tieing one on in KY with silk garden. Cast on this morning.

Hi! Found your blog through the new issue of Knitty. Do you think that the Tie One On would look good in recycled silk? I have four large skeins and no idea what to knit them into.

Posted by: LeAnne | Apr 8, 2005 9:37:01 AM

I love them
But I have a dumb question.
I assume that you knit the body in the round but I don't see in the pattern where it says to knit in the round.
Am I right. Do I start knitting in round after I cast on
