Happy Winter Solstice – it will be nice to see the days grow longer again.
Here’s the last of the four seasons. I was considering trying for another cable, but I couldn’t make any of the charts work out as a nice cable design, so here we are with lace. (I might go back and do an autumn lace to make the set complete.)
I’ve marked on the chart where beads might go even though I didn’t use any in the swatch.
Row 1 (RS): *k1, (k2tog, yo x 2, ssk) x 2, k1 ; work from *.
Row 2 (WS): *p2, (k1, p3) x 2 ; work from *.
Row 3: *k2tog, yo, k2, 1/1 RC, k2, yo, ssk ; work from *.
Row 4: purl.
Row 5: *ssk, yo, kb, yo, k2tog ; work from *.
Row 6: purl.
Row 7: *Yo, sssk, yo, k2tog, yo x 2, ssk, yo, k3tog, yo ; work from *.
Row 8: *(p4, k1) x 2 ; work from *.
Row 9: *yo, k2, k2tog, k2, ssk , yo ; work from *.
Row 10: *p9, k1 ; work from *.
Row 11: *k3, 1/1 LC, 1/1 RC, k3 ; work from *.
Row 12: purl.
Row 13: *k2, k2tog, yo, 1/1 RC, yo, ssk, k2 ; work from *.
Row 14: purl.
Row 15: *k1, k2tog, yo, k4, yo, ssk, k1 ; work from *.
Row 16: purl.
Row 17: *k2tog, yo, k6, yo, ssk ; work from *.
Row 18: purl.
As usual, I’ve also encoded Winter in a grid suitable for many crafts. While the lace was done in base 6, this sequence was done in base 3, which makes a style of chart particularly useful for stranded knitting:
