WIP Wednesday: MKAL Math

I got a little behind on my June Cashmere MKAL project due to the trade show and a bit of deadline knitting for a baby shower I attended last weekend. I'm now back on track, having started the third clue which came out last Friday:

Here's what I've been doing so far:

Crochet cast on 180 stitches and knit 1 inch of garter stitch for border, which took 8 g of yarn (so, that's what I need to save for the border and bind-off at the end).

Clue 1: Six repeats of Dot Stitch pattern. Purl 1 round.
Clue 2: Two repeats of Chevron Stitch pattern. Purl 1 round.
Clue 3: Three repeats of Mock Cable Stitch pattern (1/3 of the way through). Purl 1 round.

I am enjoying working this yarn, what's not to love about cashmere? This yarn in particular has a very cool story, as the fibers are collected directly from Kyrgyz shepherds living on small family farms along the ancient Silk Road in Central Asia (learn more here).

There are two more clues left in the MKAL, and I'll be sharing my progress over on Instagram as I knit through them, in addition to updates on this blog of course. Thanks for stopping by!
