Still experimenting with charts using the technique of Intermeshing – Double Filet. I’ve been trying my hand at motifs and this is my first effort. I used a small part of a rather old knitting chart for a Nordic sweater. The original chart had lots of individual motifs, put together to give an overall Nordic design. I chose this motif as a starting point because it looked easy. I intend to try most of the motifs in the original knitting design chart and I’m sure I’ll use some of them for a future project I have whirling around in my mind.
Note that I deliberately made the tension very loose in this sample motif as it made it a lot easier to work out where the chart required tweaking(in this instance I increased the number of cells). When I finally use the motif in a project, I will adjust the tension.
To make my sample motif:
Yarn Type: 4 ply Acrylic machine knitting yarn, left over from a previous project.
Needles: 3.75mm crochet hook.
Method: Work a foundation row of 26 cells in colour A and 25 cells in colour B, and follow the chart.
