3 years. Feels like so long ago. Yet 3 seems like a small number. Like 3 pieces of chocolate. That’s too little!
I’ve been busy testing out artisan bread. Testing as in trying to simplify the recipe. No long paragraphs. Just to the point. Coming up soon.
For today, I just knitted a lace sampler (pattern designed by Vera Sanon). A friend was having difficulty because I gave her this knitted lace pattern that was meant to be knitted in the round. I forgot to mention to her that it doesn’t work for straight needles. Apologies C! So anyhow, I translated it to straight needle knitting and here’s the pattern!
Lace Pattern (9 stitches, 12 rows)
R1: *K2, K2tog, yo, K1, yo, SSK, K2* (repeat from *to*)
R2: P all sts
R3: *K1, K2tog, yo, K3, yo, SSK, K1* (repeat from *to*)
R4: P all sts
R5: *K2, K2tog, yo, K1, yo, SSK, K2*(repeat from *to*)
R6: P all sts
R7: *K1, yo, SSK, K3, K2tog, yo, K1*(repeat from *to*)
R8: P all sts
R9: *K2, yo, SSK, K1, K2tog, yo, K2*(repeat from *to*)
R10: P all sts
R11: *K1, yo, SSK, K3, K2tog, yo, K1*(repeat from *to*)
R12: P all sts
*For my sampler, I made 2 repeats of the lace pattern. So that’s 9×2=18. And I cast on 3 sts for each end. That brings it up to 18+3+3=24 sts. Hence I cast on 24 stitches.
I repeated the pattern 2.5 times. That means I knitted 12 rows of the pattern, 12 rows again and then 6 rows.
