A new stitch pattern.
A while back, Suzanne posted a four row stitch pattern with a variable number for the stitch repeats. I decided on 3 for my variable with the constant number 2 for the purl/YO, K2tog. That meant that I cast on a multiple of 5 + 3 and 4 edge stitches for this little square. Still here after the confusion of numbers? I know, I won't do it often I promise.
I knit this my way with the YO wrapped backward (for me) to keep from getting big holes and this is the result. A pretty little braided look mock cable. It's hard to see with this yarn, but it is really pretty.
The other side looks a bit like 4X1 ribbing since it draws in so much. This would make a great reversible sweater or a really warm scarf and it is super easy to do. I was even able to put away the paper and just eyeball which row I was on. Super!
Doesn't that look really warm?
Girly wrote volumes on the rhapsodies of being a princess. I'm carefully teaching her that the best princesses are strong women who make choices about their lives and don't expect others to "make" them happy. Also that happily ever after doesn't come easy or foolproof. Just too damn many fools out there.
The cats and I have called a truce. They didn't wake me up last night and I won't wake them today. So we called it quits before they got too far ahead of me.
