Inspiration Through Colour
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.
