May 20th 2017 KAL days 1-3 plus a photo

Isn't that Rosie a beauty! 

May 20th 2017 KAL Day 1:
Our recommended color is Lavender but any solid color you like is fine. 
Day 1 and day 2 will be posted on our blog tomorrow.  You will have a photo tomorrow on our blog of the rows after day 1.
Everyday rows will be sent via an email; I will be "Replying" to the first email so all of the rows will be on one email at the end of the KAL. If you need help, check How to Knit | KnittingHelp.com for any assistance or write an email to the group for help.  For day 1 and day 2 of rows, I will post photos.
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.

This KAL is a Picture Lace cloth.
Level of difficulty:   Easy +

Day 1 and 2:
Materials:  1 skein of cotton yarn; Lavender (I used blue)
#6 US Knitting Needle. 
Cast On:  39 Stitches
Notes:           K2Tog = Knit 2 together
                        SSK = Slip 1, Slip 1, Knit 2 together
                        P1 tbl = P1 through the back loop (check knitting help sites to watch)
                        P2Tog tbl = Purl 2 together through the back loops
                        SKP = Slip 1, Knit 1, pass slip stitch over
                        P2SSO = pass 2 slip stitches over
Border:
Row 1:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Row 2:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Row 3:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Row 4:           (K1, P1) Across, end K1.
Repeat rows 1-4 one more time.
Pattern:
Row 1:           (RS) (K1, P1) x 2, K31, (P1, K1) x 2.
Row 2:           (WS) (K1, P1) x 2, P31, (P1, K1) x 2.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 three (3) more times.

I did two days at once for uniformity.  There is no photo at this point because it is just stockinette stitch.

Day 3:
Row 9:           (K1, P1) x 2, K2, K2Tog, (YO) x2, SSK, K19, K2Tog, (YO) x2, SSK, K2 (P1, K1) x2.
Row 10:        (K1,P1) x2, P3, (P1, P1-tbl in YO), P21, (P1, P1-tbl in YO), P3, (P1, K1) x2.
Row 11:        (K1, P1) x2, K5, YO, SSK, K17, K2Tog, YO, K5, (P1, K1) x2.
Row 12:        (K1, P1) x2, P31, (P1, K1) x2.
Row 13:        (K1, P1) x2, K6, YO, SSK, K15, K2Tog, YO, K6, (P1, K1) x2.
Row 14:        (K1, P1) x2, P7, YO, P2Tog, P13, P2Tog-tbl, YO, P7, (P1, K1) x2.
Row 15:        (K1, P1) x2, K5, K2Tog, YO, K1, YO, SSK, K11, K2Tog, YO, K1, YO, SSK, K5, (P1, K1) x2.
Row 16:        (K1, P1) x2, P4, P2Tog-tbl, YO, P3, YO, P2Tog, P9, P2Tog-tbl, YO, P3, YO, P2Tog, P4, (P1, K1) x2.
Row 17:        (K1, P1) x2, K3, K2Tog, YO, K5, YO, SSK, K3, YO, SSK, K2, K2Tog, YO, K5, YO, SSK, K3, (P1, K1) x2.

May Challenge KAL




Rosie says,
Welcome!

Your challenge this month is:
 Domino knitting!


~ Sample of what your cloth looks like at end of DAY 1's rows:





 -------------------------------------------------------------


day 1 was getting you through the first part - your mitered square
- so you should have been happy you learned how to do one of those, if it's your first!

For Day 2 rows, you will add the two 'sides' of the heart shape;

you will need to go to the online pattern -

You can access it,
by going to Ravelry -
 
if you are not a member, not to worry-
it's free to join, and they send no emails out to you.
It's a wonderful 'community' of knitters, so if you haven't been
there before, you will love finding all kinds of new patterns!


Click below to go to Ravelry/Pattern
 

The name of this pattern is:
 
 Domino Heart
 
by Johanna Mäki 

At Ravelry you will:

  click on "free Ravelry download"

~ you may also go to her website to download the pattern, however it is written in German:

http://mciknits.blogspot.fi/2012/12/7-luukku-sydamellinen-dominonelio.html

I chose this design to say,
Happy Mother's Day with this lovely heart!

Happy Knitting!  Don't forget, post your finished photos
in your yahoo KAL album!  ~ Linda
