Knitting stitches – Lace Chevron Pattern

I decided to try Lace Chevron pattern this time. It wasn’t until I finished the first repeat that I remembered that I had used this stitch before. To make a cardigan. The knitting pattern suggested that the whole cardigan should be knitted using this stitch. My version of the cardigan has one line of zigzags at the bottom and the sleeves, and the rest is stocking stitch. It came flooding back to me, how much I don’t like knitting this pattern. I could probably use this stitch on the sleeves of a jumper, but I am not rushing to do this one again! Lace Chevron Pattern Cast on 41 stitches. Abbreviation: P (purl), K (Knit), Yo ( yarn over), K2tog (knit 2 stitches together), psso (pass slipped stitch over the knitted stitch), s1s (slip one stitch) Repeat the stitches between the pair of *s until the end of the row.

Row 1: purl Row 2: *K5, Yo, s1s, K1, psso, K3,* K1.

Shawl Collar Cowl. A few days ago a friend of mine sent me a picture of some wool socks with an accompanying message, "Today is the greatest day.

Shawl Collar Cowl

" Now, these socks weren't a gift from me or made by me; they weren't even handmade at all. But I knew exactly why he was so excited. I knew, because it's how I feel about neckwear: Fall is here! I get to wear wool again! While Brian is happily slipping his feet into thick cozy socks, I am joyfully layering up with my new Shawl Collar Cowl. The Shawl Collar Cowl shamelessly conjures the classic 'New England professor', if there is such a thing. It may not be quite cold enough here in New York for wool socks, but it certainly is for some knit neckwear. The Materials For the cowl’s exterior: 2 skeins of Blue Sky’s Techno, 68% baby alpaca, 10% extra fine merino and 22% silk. The Pattern The Gauge 16 stitches = 4 inches in rib pattern on larger needle 15 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on smaller needle Finished Size Pattern Notes Begin the Exterior Rib Cut yarn.

COWL SCARF for Jill. Big Herringbone Cowl. This winter New York City streets are filled with people who have learned the secret of keeping warm.

Big Herringbone Cowl

They are all wrapped up in the big soft folds of the oversized cowl. A long loop that you twist and double around your neck, it's definitely a glamorous touch in a what can otherwise be pretty frumpy season. Don't you love when fashion and function meet in such happy harmony? This cowl was inspired by Joelle's classic Herringbone Poncho from her very first book, Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I have always been so taken with the drape and texture of Joelle's poncho that I was really excited to borrow her idea for this project! I stuck with Joelle's choice of yarn, Blue Sky's Worsted, because it is by far one of Purl Soho's softest, most cuddly yarns, perfect for wearing around sensitive skin areas like your neck. The cowl's final look keeps one foot in the past with a traditional herringbone stitch. The Materials 5 skeins of Blue Sky Alpaca's Worsted, 50% Royal Alpaca and 50% Merino.
