Ochre Knitted Torc

One of the first projects I knew I wanted to make for myself when I learned how to knit was this “simple torc.” Once X-mas crafting was out of the way, I decided to dive into a project for me and this was top of the list. I even had leftover ochre Malabrigo sock yarn from my Wave Shawl. Perfect!

I love how this is all fiber - no hardware!

It’s a little bit bigger than I thought it would be but I still loooove it.

The size 0 needles were tricky to maneuver at first, but once I got into a groove it was great. I picked up some 7s for another project after this and they felt cartoonishly huge! :laughing:

A progress pic for fun:

Thanks for looking!

What an adorable knitted baby corn! lol In all seriousness though, this is so you through and through and epic that you made it yourself. I need to try i-cording again. Last time it really stumped me and I shouldn’t be having this problem!!

Amazing. I can’t believe you made that! Wow! I love the color. Also, I don’t knit, so those needles look like toothpicks to me, and that makes it even more impressive.

Lol…they were like toothpicks to me, too! I was afraid I was going to break them.
