May 20th 2018 KAL Laces N Cables

Here is our second KAL for May:


May 20th, 2018 KAL:

I recommend pink or yellow yarn, but any color is fine.
I will post the photo either today or tomorrow on our blog.

This is the pattern in its entirety.

Using Lifelines will help with any project. If you aren't sure what that is, there is plenty of info on the Internet about it but it is basically where you put thread or thin yarn through a row already worked, designating that all the rows to that point are error free. You should document what row you put the lifeline in so you have a point of reference. If you make any error after that point, you know you are OK with the previous rows anyway.

Any questions?  Just send a note to the group and we will answer for you.
This is a “Cable-Lace” cloth.


Copyright © Janet Nogle 2018

1 skein of cotton yarn, #6 US Knitting Needles.

Notes:  YO: yarn over; P2Tog: Purl 2 stitches together;

C4F: Sl next 2 sts to cable needle as if to purl and hold at front of work. Knit the next 2 sts from the left needle. Use the right needle to knit the 2 sts from the cable needle, starting with the first st slipped onto the cable needle.
C4B: Sl next 2 sts to cable needle as if to purl and hold at back of work. Knit the next 2 sts from the left needle. Use the right needle to knit the 2 sts from the cable needle, starting with the first st slipped on the cable needle.

Cast on:   38

Border:
Rows 1-4:   Knit across.

Pattern:
Row 1:        K7, (P2Tog) x2, (YO K1) X4, (P2Tog) x 4, *(K1, YO) x4, (P2Tog) x2, K7
Row 2:        (WS) K3, P32, K3.
Row 3:        K3, C4F, K24, C4B, K3.
Row 4:        K3, P32, K3.

*The last YO in this sequence should be worked as if to purl, meaning wind the yarn all around the needle once. This puts you in the right place to work the P2Tog and add an additional stitch.

Repeat rows 1-4 for pattern. I worked the 4 row set 12 times.

Border:
Rows 1-4:   Knit across.
Bind off, weave in ends.
