Knit Perfect

Embossed features add great texture to a garment as an all-over pattern such as the Popcorn pattern on page 102 or the Boxed bobble pattern on page 103. Popcorns and bobbles are often added to cables, for example the Medallion bobble cable on page 109 and the Nosegay pattern on page 115. Combined with other stitches they contrast well with lace or knit and purl fabrics.

Here a single repeat of Norwegian fir lace from page 120 is used as a central panel between lines of popcorns on five stitches of stockinette (stocking) stitch and a panel of leaves worked on a background of seven stitches of reverse stockinette (stocking) stitch.
