Inspiration Through Colour
Autumn Colours at Scotney Castle
Just walked around Scotney Castle and felt very inspired by the changes of colour. It’s time to get the autumn yarns out and start designing and knitting a dress for my book. This will be a long project alongside other ones I have on the go.
Hmm! I think I will start with a mock cable rib, no cable needle required.
Why not use this rib instead of a traditional 2 x 2
Mock rib pattern (Multiples of 4 + 2)
Row 1 (Foundation Row)(RS): P2, * K2, P2, rep from * to end
Row 2 (WS): K2, *P1, YRN, P1, K2, rep from * to end
Row 3: P2, *K3, P2, rep from * to end
Row 4: K2, * P3, K2, rep from * to end
Row 5: P2, * K3, then pass the first of these sts over the last 2 sts and drop it, P2, rep from * to end.
Repeat rows 2 -5 until required length.
YRN: Yarn around needle (this makes one extra stitch)
Back to knitting now, let me know how you get on.
