Comments: Swatch is 2 repeats + 9 st (28cm) wide and 2 repeats (24cm) high. Requires a lot of blocking to enhance the eyelets in the pattern. The reverse has a lot of structural interest, see below. If the piece is left unblocked, the cables are more pronounced.

Woodgrain Pattern II
Yarn: generic wool/acrylic blend 20%/80%
Wraps Per Inch: 10 wpi
Needles: 3mm aluminium (prym)

Comments: Swatch is 2 repeats wide and 2 repeats high (with cable cross from 3rd repeat for balance). Piece didn’t require so much blocking/stretching as woodgrain pattern I, because the pattern could already be easily seen.

Yarn: generic wool/acrylic blend 20%/80%
Wraps Per Inch: 10 wpi
Needles: 3mm aluminium (prym)

Stitch Count Repeat: Multiple of 14 stitches
Book: Charted Knitting Designs – A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Page: 138
Comments: Swatch is 2 repeats wide by 2 repeats high (with cable cross from 3rd repeat for balance). Piece definitely needed blocked/stretched for the pattern to be fully appreciated. Perhaps best suited to ‘form-fitting’ garments.
