recent stitch patterns

I’m not going to be selling patterns for any of my recent projects, but I thought I’d share the instructions for the stitch patterns.

First, the cable from my sweater (which I’m still working on):

Here’s the chart and the instructions. Please note that Row Zero is a setup row, not included in the repeat.

Row 5 (RS): p, k tbl, p, 1/1 RPC, p2, 1/1 LPC, p, k tbl, p.
Row 6 (WS): k, p tbl, 1/1 LPC, k, [k tbl] x 2, k, 1/1 RPC, p tbl, k.

Row 8 (WS): k, p tbl, 1/1 RPC, k, [k tbl] x 2, k, 1/1 LPC, p tbl, k.
Row 9 (RS): p, k tbl, p, 1/1 LPC, [p tbl] x 2, 1/1 RPC, p, k tbl, p.
Row 10 (WS): k, p tbl, k2, 1/1 RPC, 1/1 LPC, k2, p tbl, k.
Row 11 (RS): p, 1/1 LPC, p2, [k tbl] x 2, p2, 1/1 RPC, p.
Row 12 (WS): k2, 1/1 RPC, k, [p tbl] x 2, k, 1/1 LPC, k2.
Row 13 (RS): p3, 1/1 LPC, [k tbl] x 2, 1/1 RPC, p3.
Row 14 (WS): k4, 1/1 LC, 1/1 RC, k4.

(Note: this is, I think, a fairly standard Bavarian traveling stitch. I’ve seen similar things elsewhere, at any rate. I modified the one from the Twist of Fate sock pattern I found on Ravelry.)

 

Secondly, the rib from the socks I’m working on. This ribbing is a standard variation; so far as I know, it doesn’t have a name. I like the vertical column of garter stitch; I think it adds a nice bit of texture.

Round 1: (p, k) x 2, p.

Happy knitting!

One thought on “recent stitch patterns

  1. Love your cables! Check out Tapestry Crochet site for an article about Korsnas
    sweaters are a stunning combination of tapestry crochet and knitting. Beginning at the bottom, they are crocheted, then knit, then crocheted in rounds for both pullover and open styles. The top seam is hand sewn together, the tube is secured with machine-sewn stitches around the arm openings, then the arm holes are cut. The sleeves are crocheted, then knit, then crocheted from the shoulder to the cuff and then sewn onto the sweater. The neck is edged with a crocheted border. The front is cut open for the button down style, then a decorative edging is added for the button and its holes and to help secure and hide the edges. The last step is to hand sew a narrow, knit band over all the cut and sewn seams to camouflage the joins.
