Going Vertical with Slip (Sneak Preview)

Slip stitch is such an easy way to add texture to your knitting. (Take THAT hand knitters!)

I’ve had this slip stitch pattern in mind for some time and finally found a use for it!

This stitch pattern is from Stitch World III – number 299. It’s 28 sts x 30 rows. It’s a fairly simple geometric horizontal design. But every time I looked at it, I envisioned it vertically.

 

This stitch pattern is the inspiration for our newest pattern (yet to be named).  Here’s a sneak peek at the front.

2 swatches – (Math Alert)

In addition to entering in the gauge for both stitch patterns in my new sweater, I’ll need to do a little math to incorporate the 28 sts / 30 row stitch repeat.

Let’s pretend the longest edge of my center front panel is 142 stitches.  142/28 = 5.07 ( that’s 5 repeats plus 2 stitches) So I’ll “fudge” a bit and cast on 140 stitches.  Although with this stitch pattern, 2 stitches wouldn’t make any difference.

Let’s pretend the width of my front panel is 124 rows.  124/30 = 4.13 (that’s 4 repeats plus 4 rows).  If you look closely at the stitch pattern, there are 4 plain rows included.  For this example, I’d simply knit 4 plain rows before starting my stitch pattern.  This would center the stitch pattern rows perfectly over my 124 rows.

Stay tuned for our newest pattern, it’s based on a “retro” pattern – it will be available in both Plus and misses sizes … with lots of options for customization!
