Palm Leaf with Mesh

Here the classic Palm Leaf is placcd on an openwork background, making a charming design lor a wide insertion or for combination with other panels. The difference between the original pattern and its variation is slight (just a yo, kl, yo opposed lo a kl, yo, kl) but it determines whether the Leaf is open or closed at the center of its base.

Ripple and Rock

In this simple and pretty bobble cable, the bobble is unexpectedly placed in the smaller of the two diamond shapes, which gives a rather novel efTect. The pattern is good in central sleeve panels. With a background worked in garter stitch instead of plain purl as shown, it makes a delightful buttonhole band for a cardigan the buttonholes being placed in the middle of the larger diamonds. Notes Front Cross (FC) and Back Cross (BC) Same as for Rope and Diamond.

Ensigns Braid

This is an enlarged Four-Rib Braid with a different arrangement of the cabled crossings. There are two superimposed diamonds, the upper one crossing to the left and the lower to the right.

Borders for Color Contrast

All of these borders are portions of.simple color patterns, as indicated by the repeal lines following the pattern rows. In each case, only one repeal is shown. This will give the knilter a good idea of how to use any color pattern as a contrasting border. Since these patterns are not shown in their entirety, the reader-is advised to try each one in a swatch of 3 or 4 repeats, to see how it looks as a continuous design. Then, try a favorite Slip-Stitch. Mosaic, or Fancy Color Pattern in a...

Stripe with Twisted Bars

Contributed by Leona Hughes, Sarasota, Florida Here is a simple two-row pattern with a neat, ladder-like effect. The broader ribs arc given texture interest by being knitted on the wrong side. This pattern is suitable for insertions or bands, sleeves, scarves, and blouses. Several repeats may be used in combination with other lace panels. Row 1 (Right side) Kl, * yo, kl, k3 tog, kl. yo, kl rep from *. Row 2 PI, * k5, pi rep from *.

Grecian Lace Edging

Every line in this handsome bias pattern slopes gently downhill from right to left, terminating at the bound-off scallop. Six repeats of the pattern rows are required to move one series of openings all the way down from the straight edge to the scallop. Being strongly bias, this pattern is not suitable for a straight edge, such as the side of a table mat or curtain, but must go around something a sleeve, a skirt, or a round doily, for instance. The first row and the last row can be sewn...

Or Bitterns

Many knitters like to use the Fair Isle method of forming designs in color, changing the colors as required for each stitch, and stranding the unused colors across the back of the fabric. But there are no patterns for Fair Isle knitting in this book. Fair Isle knitting is plain stockinette stitch, with no texture interest the designs are made only by alternating colors. Slip-stitch color knitting, on the other hand, presents true stitch patterns which arc embellished and enhanced by contrasting...

Plain Scalloped Edging

This is the basic edging a simple construction of increases and decreases, which can be worked in any kind of yarn and applied to anything. Shallower scallops can be made by increasing and decreasing on every other row instead of every row. Also, the number of stitches is optional, and so is the number of rows used to complete a scallop. The only rule here is that the number of increase rows must be equal to the number of decrease rows. Further decoration can be added by working a bobble into...

Fireflowers

This is a 20-row pattern, with the extra rows serving only to alternate colors. It may be worked in three colors only one for the background, two for the pattern stripes by repeating just Rows 1-20. Or it may be worked in two colors, using B for Rows 11 and 12 as well as 1 and 2. In this four-color version, it is best to break the strands of B, C, and D after the second and twelfth rows, rather than carrying them up the side of the piece, because it is a long stretch before these colors are...

Slack Line or Drunken Sailor Cable

This pattern is fun, easy to work, and mysterious everyone wonders how the cable is made to slither gently from side to side It is done with increases and decreases on every 4th row. Notice that the cable is twisted to the right when traveling to the left, and to the left when traveling to the right. This makes it seem about to untwist itself, and adds to the precarious effect. Notes Front Cross FC si 2 sts to dpn and hold in front, k2, then k2 from dpn. Back Cross BC si 2 sts to dpn and hold...

Dot Knot Stitch

Here is one of those little hint-of-texture patterns that relieve a plain stockinette fabric so nicely. It is attractive in almost any kind of yarn, but is not very successful in variegated colors. A plain color, however, points up the little knots quite well. Rows 1 and 3 Wrong side - Purl. Row 2 Knit.

Candlelight

Candlelight Knit Pattern

A pattern as beautiful and popular as the old Candlelight is bound to have several variations. This one is perhaps even more lovely than the original.

Knitting With Four Colors

Single stitches of each of the four colors chase each other all over the fabric in rich profusion.

Cluster Quilting

This beautiful pattern is made by a fascinatingly unusual technique that is much less complicated than it seems at lirst glance. Novice knitters are likely to be frightened by the long lines of loose stitches dropped off the needle in Rows 4 and 10, looking as though they might disappear forever. But don't worry they won't. The following rows pick them up again very neatly, one at a time. Since the dropped stitches are never crossed, there is no problem about knowing which one to pick up next...

Medallion with Leaf

This pattern is attractive as a panel in fancy sweaters such as Aran knits. Or, it can be used to dress up afghans, coat sleeves, hats, mittens, or knee socks. There are, of course, many possible variations the medallions can be larger or smaller, or filled in with purl, seed or moss stitch instead of garter stitch, or featuring some other motif instead of the embossed leaf in the center.

Dry Bones Cable

In strong contrast to the Nautical Twisted-Rope, this cable is about as skeletal and skinny as a cable can be. But its slender lines of single stitches suggest the wider motif that would result if these bones were fleshed out with seven knit stitches instead of the solitary one in the center. Notes Front Cross FC si 1 st to dpn and hold in front, pi, then kl-b from dpn. Back Cross BC si I st to dpn and hold in back, kl-b, then pi from dpn. Rows 1 and 3 Right side P5, kl-b, p5.

Haystack Stripe

This is a gay and interesting pattern of only eight rows, which arc repeated three times in order to alternate the colors. At first glance it appears to be a design of horizontal stripes, which are elongated upward and downward at intervals. But look more closely, and you will see that it is really a pattern of slip-cross cables, worked continuously across the fabric with a half-drop. This true design immediately becomes apparent if the pattern is worked in one solid color, using the basic...

Sheepfold

Knitted Sheepfold Cable

Contributed by Elizabeth Zimmermann, Milwaukee. Wisconsin This pattern was originally planned for circular knitting, so that all rows would be worked from the right side. To do it in this way, simply work all odd-numbered rows backward, substituting knit for purl and vice versa, and working plain RT and LT instead of RRT and RLT. When converted into back-and-forth knitting, the pattern calls for some twists made on the wrong side. See Sunrise Shell Pattern for additional discussion or RLT....

Each of the plaited ribs is a series of short rows, and each one stands up a full quarter-inch, or more, from the background.

Fancy Shingle Pattern

This pattern produces overlapping shingles that are raised at the lower edges and decorated with scalloped borders of Color A. The method of avoiding holes on the turning rows is the same as that used by knowledgeable knitters in garment shaping, such as the short rows on shoulders or collars i.e., hooking the yarn around an unworked stitch before turning the work. By trying the pattern both with and without this little trick, the novice knitter can prove its advantages for herself. Multiple of...

To find the right stitch from which to take the loops, count 3 stitches over on the left-hand needle and then 3 ridges down, beginning with the ridge immediately under the needle. Insert hook under the third ridge, just above...
