What’s your Angle?

There are many ways to pick a knitting project, and knitters approach it from different directions. Some want to focus on the process, whether it be simple stitching, interesting techniques, or full-blown challenges. Others are more interested in the resulting product, garment, silhouette, and fit. While yet others may focus on aesthetics before anything else. One approach is not necessarily exclusive of the other but rather a range within and between.

Tech center For technique fans, we offer ideas that will keep your mind engaged, as well as your hands. Stroll through our Berry patch. Reds, pinks, and purples pair up in assorted miters to join the solid-colored body panels. The slanted assembly offers memorable knitting and a noteworthy, asymmetric silhouette. The undulating waves of Rising tides, our cover scarf, look like a complicated stripe, intarsia, or woven design, but are the result of a series of garter-stitch short rows worked with a longcolor-repeat yarn. Blue ridge is a celebration of angles — miters, chevrons, and diagonal panels — combined with stockinette, reverse stockinette, and garter rows. Side vents, slight A-line shaping, and a crocheted border offer a clean, tailored finish.

Tilt, turn, & tie, page 60

The French term for zipper is fermeture Éclair, and although this poncho doesn’t need a closure, the two checkerboard-textured panels are joined with entrelac rectangles worked in a similar fashion to zipper teeth. It’s a bit of a challenge to create, but such a rewarding knit! Need we say more? For the product-driven crowd, these pieces are also uniquely lovely and subject to color changes to suit your garment needs as well as tastes. Such is the case for every project in this issue!

Cable craft Cables are a great way to create surface texture — as an all-over pattern or confined to a certain portion of a garment. Ropes & rails cover the surface of this classic pullover, light enough to span three seasons. Sideways-knit panels flank the center cable panels of Nacre. This openfront vest features slight A-line shaping and contrasting trim, but the pearl of the design is the embroidered knots added to the front cables.

Éclair, page 14

Side views Sideways construction offers opportunities not easily accomplished in conventional bottom-up assembly. Verticals become horizontals, and vice-versa. Ridges, ropes, diamonds, and trellises dance across the body of Side-winding cables. The tunic length is on trend but could easily be shortened by removing a cable panel or two. Maybe a double-breasted Band jacket featuring panels of lace framed by contrasting panels is more your style. The high collar and shaped waistband offer added detailing. From many buttons to none, the Tilt, turn, & tie is worked in mirrored halves that seam at the center back. The construction is clever in that you begin with front diagonal panels that also serve as front bands, then work around to the back. Strategic use of the yarn’s color repeat offers balance, and the tie closure adds the finishing touch. Self-patterning socks have been the rage for quite a few seasons. Instead of colorful stripes to wrap your legs, Earn your stripes turns them 90° and brings them around your shoulders, to become vertical stripes. Begin work at one narrow corner, widen to the center, then narrow back down to the opposite corner. The piece is long and generous, and can be worn in many ways.

Pewter Vines, page 40

We can create stripes on our own by using two yarns, and if those yarns are multicolored, we get even more bang for our buck. Sea grass and saffron is set on edge with both stockinette and garter stitches worked within the rows, creating subtle shaping. A simple slit finishes this mockwrap skirt.

Band jacket, page 28 6 Knitter’s Magazine  K125

(continues on page 8)


Ridges, ripples, and waves The magic of taking yarn and making interesting fabrics often comes from stitch combinations. An added punch of color or contrast might help, but they are sound when knit in a single, solid color. Eyelet clusters lean into one another as they travel the length of Pewter vines. Wear this lace camisole with a cardigan, jacket, or shawl for elegant, yet simple, dressing. The 2 x 2 color changes, inspired by architectural trims, add extra character to Dentil work with its leaf-motif panel. Although it looks like a cable, the lace is easier to work, and has no draw-in of gauge as a cable would.

Side-winding cables page 52

Vertical brioche ribs play against garter stripes in the waistband and yoke of the Boyfriend brioche. With just a little change in length, it is an attractive knit for him! Quick and easy, the bulky Ever – green duo is a play of ribs. One side provides single-stitch ridges, while the other offers etched lines as a contrast. Our 2 x 2-to-3 x 1 rib transition is interesting play for creating buttonholes or eyelets, and the decreases in the cap are unique and visually striking as well.

Ropes & rails page 69

The almost-solid color of Heather mist is perfect for showcasing the stair-like pattern. Not quite a basketweave, the stitch pattern includes a turn that reminds one of a turn between flights of stairs — placed perfectly to visually “nip in” at the waistline.

Take a series of hand-dyed colors and work Chevron sheath. The frequency of the ripple row dictates the shaping of the piece, and is quite a fun approach to knitting. Note the great, balanced increases worked within the piece. A rich palette of techniques, silhouettes, and looks are peppered throughout this issue. . . you decide. . .

STITCHES Texas Showdown Reported by Kellie Nuss Last February, designers contributed one-of-a-kind knockers that were displayed in the Market at STITCHES West 2016 (find the story at www.knittinguniverse.com/k123). More than just showing off their work, the Designer Knocker Wall became a place of healing, laughter, and tears as thousands thought of their own experiences and those of loved ones. The Idea In keeping with an ongoing partnership with Barbara Demorest and KnittedKnockers.org, STITCHES organized another Designer Knockers challenge at STITCHES Texas 2016 in September. This time yarn companies, vendors, and sponsors helped raise awareness. Entrants were encouraged to create a fun, unforgettable knocker design that would showcase their company and bring attention to the cause. Each entry would be judged, with winners earning bragging rights and the satisfaction of helping cancer survivors in a very real way.

A buck a vote—each entry had its own Mason jar.

The Winners

The Showdown We received 20 entries from 15 companies, including one that was a partnership between Skacel and the Seattle Seahawks. Each knocker reflected individual inspiration, creativity, and a commitment to help cancer survivors. The knockers were displayed at the front of the STITCHES Market in Irving, Texas. Market attendees chose the People’s Choice by voting with cash for their favorite. Additionally, each knocker was judged in the categories of Best Branding and Most Creative. On Sunday afternoon, just before the Market closed, the winning knockers were announced, with awards going to Clover USA (Sheila Rolfer) and Universal Yarn (Amy Gunderson) for Best Branding and to Prism Yarns (Laura Bryant) and Tahki-Stacy Charles/String Yarns (Joan Forgione with “Cancer Sucks!”) for Most Inspirational/Creative. Barbara and her team counted all of the donated dollar votes, with the People’s Choice award going to Buffalo Wool (Lynette Meek). Other participants (companies designers) were: Bryson Distributing Mindy Garner; Cascade Yarns Carly Waterman; Clover Needlecraft Ella Jensen and Eloise Wagers; Craftsy Sunne Meyer; Louet North America Stacey Trock; Prime Publishing Mary Beth Temple; Prism Yarn Brigitte Reydams; Red Heart Marly Bird; Skacel Collection Hannah Mann, Chuck Wilmesher, and Katie Rempe; Universal Yarn Tori Gubisz; XRX, Inc. Myra Wood; The Yarn Guys Jeffrey Wall; Yarnover Truck Barbra Pushes and Marilee Nelson. See the complete story and all the pictures online at knittinguniverse.com/knockers showdown.

Éclair I love Legos, and I love entrelac, too. To me they are almost interchangeable, building one block onto another. Just as my Lego building began with towers and progressed to more complicated structures, my entrelac construction has expanded as well. The added benefit to knitting entrelac is that, at the end, you have something to wear. When I contemplated the possibility of joining entrelac, I realized that grafting would require me to cut the yarn as I joined each pair of blocks, resulting in too many ends for my comfort. After some time and much thought, the answer came to me: Treat the entrelac points like the teeth of a zipper! Zippers are closed by alternately “interlocking” one tooth from each side of the opening. Entrelac could work the same way, working tiers on each side of the opening simultaneously while alternating blocks — no grafts! Looking for a reasonably straightforward project, I thought of a two-rectangle poncho — perfect for at least three seasons because the relaxed fit lends itself to layering. The majority of the poncho is worked with stockinette and reverse stockinette squares set on the bias. The entrelac border runs diagonally from the neck toward the left arm edge. Applying the entrelac border is a bit challenging, but before you know it your poncho will be zipped up and ready to wear! Entrelac is a French word, so I checked the French term for zipper and found “fermeture éclair.” I couldn't imagine how pastry related to zippers, so I kept reading. Éclair translates as “lightning” or “flash,” so a zipper is a lightning fast closure. “Éclair de génie” is a flash of inspiration — which seems appropriate for this way to join entrelac. Finally, éclair may also be translated as “to make bright.”

The body is worked in the round in one piece to underarm, then divided and front and back are worked separately. Shaping in lace: If the shaping breaks up any yarn-over/decrease pair (2 yarn-overs and SK2P), do not work the yarn-over or the decrease; simply knit to the next pair. Cast on and bind off firmly for the shoulder straps. To pick up stitches along the shoulder straps for the neck edging, pick up in the long loop of the caston only.

Sideways skirt The skirt is knit sideways in one piece; cast on for the length from hem to waist. The skirt is shaped with slight wedges formed by changing from stockinette stitch to garter stitch within rows — rather than with short rows. To adjust length Add (any number) or subtract (up to 20) stitches at the hem. Make the same adjustments to the bold numbers in the Wedge. Inspired by Side-to-side skirts in Candace Eisner Strick’s book Knit My Skirt (www.KnittingUniverse.com/KnitMySkirt).

Side-winding cables

Layers of texture — ridges, ropes, diamonds, and trellises — dance across this tunic's body. Because the piece is worked sideways, the shaping process is based on rows rather than stitches. Should you desire a shorter length, simply remove a panel or two.

Notes See School, page 78, for abbreviations and techniques. Shaping is built into the stitch pattern of this dress, which begins with simple stripes. As chevron rows are added, the fabric becomes narrower for a neat fit at the waist, then chevron rows are slowly removed for bust shaping. When measuring, hold knitting upright to allow for downward stretch— known as "hung" gauge. Dress is worked in singlerow stripes that transition through all of the colors from hem to shoulder.

Short rows (w&T) Each short row adds two rows of knitting across a section of the work. Since the work is turned before completing a row, stitches must be wrapped at the turn to prevent holes. On stockinette stitch, work a wrap as follows: Knit side

1 With yarn in back, slip next stitch as if to purl. Bring yarn to front of work and slip stitch back to left needle (as shown). Turn work. 2 With yarn in front, slip next stitch as if to purl. Work to end.

Purl side

3 When you come to the wrap on a following knit row, hide the wrap by knitting it together with the stitch it wraps.

1 With yarn in front, slip next stitch as if to purl. Bring yarn to back of work and slip stitch back to left needle (as shown). Turn work. 2 With yarn in back, slip next stitch as if to purl. Work to end.

2,680 reasons to not turn your work While editing Éclair (page 14), I found myself itching to knit the piece to get a better grasp on the process. Laura Barker suggests working back and forth without turning your work which perfectly fits my approach to all knitting. I figure I saved about 380 turns while working the body sections and over 1800 turns while working the entrelac rectangles. Rising Tides (page 38) is all short rows. Knitting from right to left and purling from left to right saved me 2,680 turns! Yes! I am finishing that piece as well. Berry Patch (page 22) isn’t on my list yet, but I am sure the time saved by learning to purl from left to right would benefit anyone. The same goes for Blue Ridge (page 56). These are all projects with lots of relatively short rows of knitting — lots of turns.

Knit from L to R

1 With yarn in back of work, insert left needle into stitch on right needle from front to back and move left needle behind right needle.

2 Bring yarn over left needle tip from back to front.

3 While lifting right needle tip, bring yarn through stitch and onto left needle to form new stitch. Pull stitch off right needle. — Entrée to Entrelac (XRX Books)

A note No, I don’t usually count turns; I just wanted to make a point. And the numbers are revealing: even if I saved as little as 5 seconds at each turn of Éclair, I saved 150 minutes — that’s over 2½ hours of potential knitting time! Not to mention the grief of flipping the work, swapping the needles and hands, and keeping multiple strands of yarn sorted. — Rick Mondragon

Purl from L to R

1 With yarn in front of work, insert left needle into stitch on right needle from back to front.

2 Wrap yarn counterclockwise around left needle. 3 Bring yarn under right needle and through stitch . . .

4  . . . to form a new stitch on left needle. Pull stitch off right needle. — Entrée to Entrelac

Left-handers and proponents of knitting in both directions — whether you are left- or right-handed — Gwen Bortner (author of Entrée to Entrelac) and Rick Mondragon recommend learning to do any WS operation on the RS by first turning your work to the WS and seeing what you do. Then mimic that placement of needles and movement of yarn on the RS.

Here’s looking at p2tog both ways: . . .worked from R to L (on WS)

1 Insert right needle into first 2 stitches on left needle.

2 Purl these 2 stitches together.

. . .worked from L to R (on RS)

1 Insert left needle into first 2 stitches on right needle and move left needle behind right needle.

2 Bring yarn over left needle tip from back to front and pull yarn through these 2 stitches. Pull both stitches off right needle. — Entrée to Entrelac
