Shreddies: Knitted by nanas


I don't know about you but ever since I saw the advert for the shreddies knitted by nanas i've wanted to be a knitting nana. Until today I had been stifling my dream (hahaha) . Today I finally decided to knit some shreddies and for all who feel like me I am also including the pattern so you can knit your own. knit a bowl, knit a box or just knit one BE A KNITTING NANA!!!!! :)

Shreddies Pattern :

Using brown yarn and 3 1/4 mm knitting needles cast on 7 sts

*Row 1: (M1, K2tog) repeat 3 times, K1 (7 sts)

Row 2: Purl*

Row 3 - 6: Repeat from * to * 2 more times

Cast off

Fasten and cut off any loose ends (you can also stretch your shreddie slightly to open up eyelets more)


Abbreviations :
  • K= Knit
  • K2tog= Knit 2 stitches together
  • sts = stitches
  • M1 = Make 1 by winding yarn around needle
