I recently received a large box filled with vintage thread from a friend of mine. I saw 2 spools of this beautiful blue and knew I had to use it immediately on a new pattern. However, I didn't realize that I would run out! This pattern is bigger than my average size, and I never know how big they will be when I begin them. However, since I already have a lot of thread, and a lot of partially-used spools, I was able to find a few leftovers in a strikingly similar color. They match so well you really can't tell, especially not from the pictures alone.
"Ceres" turned out to be 42 rounds and about 18-inches in diameter. If you've been paying attention, you might have noticed I've been using more space-themed names. This makes #4: Cassini, Orion, Antares, and Ceres. I definitely plan to use more.
If you're uncomfortable with taller stitches, I will warn you that this one does utilize TRTRs. If you look closely at the pictures, you can see an entire round of TRTRs that create a spoke-like effect around the center. I really like the look of them in this pattern, especially how the "yarn overs" create a twisted look to the stitches.
For this pattern, I used 73g / 510y of size 10 thread. You will need between 500-550 yards, depending on your tension and the hook size you prefer to use. I am still using a 2.25mm because of my very tight tension.
This pattern is 50% off until 10:30am EST tomorrow, July 15th, 2018. I recommend you purchase it through Ravelry using the correct button below. But if you cannot purchase through Ravelry, you may purchase it directly from me using either of the black buttons.
