Can anyone help please?

Postby Dance_Mummy » Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:13 pm

I started this Rovaris owl pattern a few years ago. The chart didn’t say how many skeins were required. I got a couple thinking this would be enough - how wrong I was. I bought 3 more of the dmc’s only to find out they have changed the thread colour.

The dmc labels on the left is what I used 815. The new threads are the ones labelled .815 on the right which are a different colour.

Does anyone have any dmc with labels 815. that they would be willing to either swop or let me purchase?

I really would love to finish this!!!!

Thank you to Sindy for posting in wips/ufo’s and suggesting I ask members for help.

Just checked my spare threads Paula but haven't got any spare skeins. I do have some on a bobbin but don't think it's all that old so is more likely to be the later shade though you're welcome to it if you want to compare

How did you guess :lol: I loved your owl.
Do you recall how many skeins you used in total? I’m doing it 2 over 2 on 28count.

Jayne/kbaywolf will send you both a pm - thanks

If you aren't able to get any more skeins in the proper colour of 815 maybe you will have to go on with the ones you have. Maybe you could use one strand of the old skein and one strand of the new strand together for awhile, and then move on to 2 strands of the new colour. That way the colour change won't be quite so noticeable because it would be blended for a bit first. Just a thought! I've had to do this before and it worked pretty well!
