A New Published Design

Hope everyone's December is going well.

If you need a last-minute stocking, here it is! The stitch pattern is "Texture Tweed" from The Harmony Guide to Knitting Stitches.  An especially nice thing about this book is that a number of the stitches are shown first in one color and then in multiple color combinations.

Although this is a stitch pattern in three colors, only one color is used for each pair of rows. The complex look of the stitch is achieved by slipping stitches so that a previous color is carried up into the current row. Rather than pictorial as the Jack-o-Lantern Cup Cozy, an overall stitch pattern is created. This is a great technique for using more than one color of yarn in a project.

Until next time.
