Notes

Knitting this sample for Miss Babs!

Some noteworthy things:

  • There are only 4 ends to weave in total!
  • There are 5 sections: (1) MC with scoops; (2) add CC scoops to MC background; (3) change to MC scoops over CC background; (4) line up the scoops over the purl stitches of the previous row so the scoops alternate (see close-up photos); and (5) CC lace section.
  • Once you figure out how the pattern goes, you can pretty much read your knitting and knit on autopilot.
  • Make sure your stitch count before the lace section is correct.
  • To make it easier for me to keep track of stitch counts and so I could watch tv, I used stitch markers at the beginning of each lace repeat.

MC: 117g (.5 g left)
CC: 115g (.1 g left)

Before blocking: 80” from tip to tip x 19.5” at the widest part
After blocking: 84” from tip to tip x 22” at the widest part
