The Summer Solstice has just passed, and so I’m posting my Summer stitch patterns to go with Spring.
First, the lace. This one was encoded with base 7 instead of base 6, because it came out better that way. I’ve shown beads on the middle repeat, but beads are not necessary.
Row 1 (RS): Yo, sssk, k3, yo, k2, yo, k3, k3tog, yo. (14 sts)
Row 2 (WS): P13, k.
Row 3: Yo, k, sssk, (k2, yo) x 2, k2, k3tog, k, yo.
Row 4: P13, k.
Row 5: K2, ssk, k3, yo x 2, k3, k2tog, k2.
Row 6: P6, k, p7.
Row 7: K, yo, kb, yo, sssk, k4, k3tog, yo, kb, yo, k.
Row 8: Purl.
Row 9: K, yo, k2, yo, cdd, k2, cdd, yo, k2, yo, k.
Row 10: Purl.
Row 11: K2, yo, kb, yo, k, cdd x 2, k, yo, kb, yo, k2.
Row 12: Purl.
And here’s a stranded pattern, done with base 3, which I’ve recently found does really well for a certain style of stranded design (a lot of peeries and vertical stripes). I’ve also included a base 3 version of Spring, though I haven’t swatched it. I thought the four seasons might be a particularly nice theme if I could make four of them to go together.
(The stranded charts were done with chart-minder.com.)
