Icord slippers

knitting small size due to guage difference.

CO34 st
15 rows seed stitch

Test Barton

Working out how to do these on the machine.

Using a single bed with a colour changer & latching up the 20 rows of ribbing bc it’s faster than transferring sts.

I knit the pocket linings and use my garter bar to pick up the front panels so that they can by hung behind the knitting.

Poppies

Start with black yarn and make a magic ring.
Chain up 3 & put 9 Tb into the MR.
Change to red.
chain up 2, HTb in same stitch, 2hTb in both of the next 2 sts, hTb in next st & turn.
DC in every hTb of previous row & turn.
2 DC in each DC of previous row
Chain 3 and then slip st into the same st as the end hTb.

Repeat petals twice more then tie off & weave in the ends.

Wibbly wobbly scarf

I cast on 45 sts and followed the video for the first and subsequent odd rows, but I’m putting 2 chains between each cluster in the second and alternate rows so that it is less stiff – much better for a scarf.

I’m not loving this. Need to remember that l hate clusters.
Ripping this and re-doing it with a more open Lacey pattern.
