Free Knitting Kit Patterns Downloads The woven stitch creates a, wait for it…. woven texture for your knits! The stitch is worked over an uneven number of stitches, and looks great with our t-shirt yarn, Jersey Be Good. Just take a look at our Hold Tight Clutch and see for yourself ;) Woven stitch is one of our favourite stitches here at WATG HQ. Technickety: How to unvent a simple cable I had a heap of messages asking where the cable for Jeff's glove came from. It's a fairly generic multi-strand cable; called a "Saxon Braid" (thanks, Purly White!). I see Wendy at wendyknits has used it for a sweater, and I'm sure it's to be found in stitch dictionaries. That said, being able to read an existing cable and knowing how to reconstruct it is a very useful skill. I'm not suggesting, of course, that the following be used in any way that takes credit away from a designer of a garment - rather, this is a reference for understanding how a simple cable works and how to write a chart.
February 2011 Well, now that I've depressed us all with that photo of the inside of our torn-apart hot water heater shed, I'm happy to report that all is back in order today--neat, tidy, and shipshape--and looking like nothing ever happened. It's too dark out still for me to get a photo of the little shed, all restored and looking much better, but it is so. We have water, blessed running water. We have it in hot, and we have it in cold. Feather Rib knitting pattern: A two-row repeat stitch - So Woolly In this tutorial, you will learn how to knit the Feather Rib pattern: An alternative to the traditional Ribbing stitch. Easy and quick to knit (it’s a two-row repeat stitch), textured (feathers are embossed), and it includes a little bit of lace. Those of us who knit sweaters and cardigans on a regular basis, sometimes get weary of knitting the usual 1×1 and 2×2 ribbing stitches… So it´s nice to have an inventory of different options for stitches to knit the hems and cuffs of our sweaters. It’s motivating and it creates great enthusiasm for a new project (IMHO). The Feather Rib pattern is especially suitable when knitting a sweater in Stockinette stitch.
