Grand Trefoil

Grand Trefoil
Yarn: Cascade 220
Wraps Per Inch: 10 wpi
Needles: US #6
Gauge: 11 sts X 18 rows over 4 inches X 4 inches (10 cm X 10 cm) in pattern
Pattern: Grand Trefoil
Stitch Count Repeat: Multiple of 5 plus 3
Book: A Second Treasury of Knitting
Chapter: Lace Patterns
Page: 263

Like most lace, this pattern needs vigorous blocking or it looks a bit of a mess. I could have stretched it even more if I’d used a looser cast on and bind off and hadn’t surrounded the swatch with a garter stitch border. Walker does recommend a very loose cast on and bind off in the book. It’s a garter-based lace and as such, is reversible and does not curl. No picture of the back this time. The book appears to show the pattern in a crochet cotton thread or lace-weight type of yarn so I thought I’d try it in worsted weighted weight. A very easy pattern but it helps to pay attention as picking up dropped stitches is a challenge.

Double Faggoting

Double Faggoting

Yarn: Cascade Fixation
Wraps Per Inch: 11-12 wpi
Needles: US #4
Gauge: (relaxed)16 sts X 22 rows over 4 inches X 4 inches (10 cm X 10 cm) in pattern. Will vary greatly depending on blocking.
Pattern: Double Faggoting
Stitch Count Repeat: Multiple of 4 plus 1.
Book: Charted Designs: A Third Treasury of Knitting
Chapter: Uncharted Miscellany
Page: 251

Notes: A reversible stitch. Knit in a fine yarn on large needles it’s lacier, but still has an accordion-like effect (see pics 3 & 4). However, as Walker notes, in a dk-worsted weight like Fixation and knit on small needles, it has the elasticity of regular ribbing. It has to be stretched or blocked to see the lacy effect. Relaxed, it is very compact and dense. See second pic.
