27 february, 2007

In part 2 of my 3 day swatch, I knit the body of my mini Orenburg shawl along with the side borders.  The instructions called for a garter stitch body, but I couldn't resist throwing in a few stitch patterns from the book's Stitch Dictionary.  Tomorrow I get to turn the corners and knit the final border.  Hey, this is fun!

Yarn: Lorna's Lace's sock yarn in cream
Needles: US 2
Stitch: 3 stitch patterns used in the body -- from bottom to top: Peas, Mouse Prints, and Honeycomb
Source: "A Sample Shawl to Knit" from The Gossamer Webs Design Collection, page  5.   Stitch patterns from the Stitch and Border Dictionary in the same book, page 13, 15, & 14

Looks great! I'm going to have to learn how to do this too someday. How can I resist stitch patterns called peas and mouse prints?

I like how this type of shawl is knit all at once with the edging.

I am loving every swatch you make! I just had to go back to the beginning to catch up. I especially like your free-form short row log cabin swatches.

looks like diagonals, mouse prints and honeycomb, though from the little you've done it might be peas. is that right?

guess not. hmm, i've done honeycomb and it looked different, but i used the hexagonal cluster from the book. close though, considering i don't have the book in front of me
