Introducing Ribbon Weed

Not only have I chosen my favourite set of names from the naming contest, I’m ready to announce the publication of the first pattern from the collection.

Without further ado, let me introduce you to Ribbon Weed, a super-bulky cabled throw.


You will be able to whip up this cabled throw in no time! The Cascade Magnum produces a luxurious and stylish fabric that is super cozy to snuggle under.

Throw with Atticus

The throw features large double-seed-stitch-filled cables nestled in reverse stockinette stitch and a garter stitch border.


The pattern is available for purchase individually or as part of the Fundy Tides Collection, which will also include two pillow patterns. You can find more information about the collection here.

Once again, thanks go out to Eleanor Dixon for technical editing. And this time a huge thank you goes out to my mom, Pat Bostwick, for test knitting, proof reading, and coming up with the great names for the collection.

    Having a slight problem with starting the ribbon weed throw. Am following chart written instructions and on row 1 of cable it states k9,p6,k3,*p4, (k1,p1)x8, k ? How many? Can you help? Ann

      Hi Ann,
      Thank you for pointing out that typo. It should read ” K1″ instead of “K”. I will change that asap and upload an update on Ravelry and LoveKnitting. Sorry about that, I’m not sure how that 1 disappeared!

    I recently purchased the Ribbon Weed Afghan pattern. I do not understand the instructions given for rows 1 and 2 after the cast-on. They are different from the cable charts rows 1 and 2.

    You also say to repeat these 2 rows working the cable chart at the same time. I do not understand what you mean.

    Can you please help me out with this as I am anxious to start the afghan.

    Thank you
