Fragments Clue 13

Hey Knitters, how's the KAL going?  Three weeks down, we've only got a few clues left!

So, if you didn't see the update from yesterday... there was a tiny mistake in Clue 12.  At the end of the clue when you’re knitting your three border rows, you don’t need to increase any stitches in this section. Clue 13 will have 48 sts just like Clue 12.  If you've already finished this clue, just knit back the last row and take out the increase.  I have updated the pattern, so if you've copied/printed/already knit that clue you'll need to make that update.  I am sorry for any inconvenience!


KEY:
yo:  yarn over- A single increase.  Move the yarn to the front of the work, the same action as if you were to purl, then wrap the yarn over the top of the needle and resume your knitting.  This creates a hole or an eyelet in the fabric.

k2tog: knit 2 stitches together- A right-slanting decrease.  Insert the needle into the next two stitches as if to knit, and knit these stitches together. 

skp- slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit the next stitch and pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch and off the needle.  This is a left-slanting decrease.

Pattern:
Row 1: K3 *P6, K3* across the row
Row 2: K7 *K2tog, P3, K1, yo, K3* repeat to the last 5sts K5
Row 3: K3, P7 *K3, P6* repeat to the last 11sts K3, P5, K3
Row 4: K6 *K2tog, P3, K1, yo, K3* repeat to the last 6sts K6

Row 7: K3, P9 *K3, P6* repeat to the last 9sts K3, P3, K3
Row 8: K4 *K2tog, P3, K1, yo, K3* repeat to the last 8sts, K8
Row 9: K3, P10 *K3, P6* repeat to the last 8sts, K3, P2, K3

Row 16: K10 *yo, K1, P3, skp, K3* repeat to the last 11sts, yo, K1, P3, skp, k5
Row 17: K3, P3 *K3, P6* repeat to the last 6sts P3, K3

  1. This is so fun! Is it correct to assume that Row 1 of each pattern is a RS row? I got sort of mixed up. Thank you for providing so much fun when it is so cold!

  2. So, how many YO's do you think I have knit in a 48 year knitting career and why did I have brain freeze on this? Ha! Ha! However, done and onto next fragment! L.A.L. (learning a lot!) Skeath...
