    I love this pattern! I’m not sure what you mean by working it vertically. Is there a difference in the way the pattern is worked? Are these instructions in the book?

  2. netcatcher Says:

    Yes, what do you mean by “working it vertically”? Then what is working it “lengthwise”?

  3. veiland Says:

    Sorry. I meant “Turning it vertically leads to the picture below.”

    I’ve found that the right leaning portion of the pattern ends up looking nice and orderly, while the left-leaning parts are less easy to see the pattern.

    What I did to fix this was to knit the second knit stitch in the group (the one that will be the first stitch in the slipped pair) through the back loop. This prevented the leg of the knit stitch from bumping up and obscuring the nice lines of the diagonal floats.

    Dazzling! It looks like it makes a thick woven fabric that would be excellent for vests (waistcoats) or jackets. Was it hard to concentrate on the pattern–what I mean is, was it confusing as you were working this?

  6. Linda Says:

    I love the pattern. Would you happen to have a chart for it? Thanks,

  7. Sabine Says:

    Looks lovley indeed – but as I am not English native, it’s quite complicated without a chart. Does anyone happen to have one?

    Many thanks,
