Clamshell Pattern

Clamshell front

Yarn: KnitPicks Merino Style, Moss
Needles: US #6/4mm KnitPicks Options
Gauge: 4.5 st/inch after blocking
Pattern: Clamshell Pattern
Stitch Count Repeat: 4 stitches
Book: A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Page: 128-29
Knit by: Emilee

Notes: This swatch shows six horizontal repeats and four vertical repeats. It includes the difficult “k5tog tbl” maneuver, so keep a crochet hook handy! While I wouldn’t necessarily call the wrong side attractive, it’s at least interesting.

Broken Block Pattern

broken_block_right_side
Yarn: Schachenmayr Extra
WPI: 12
Needles: 4mm (US6)
Gauge: 5.5 sts per inch over pattern, blocked
Pattern: Broken Block Pattern
Stitch Count Repeat: Multiple of 8 sts
Book: A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Page: 6
Comments: Even though this pattern isn’t reversible, it does have a nice basketwave-y wrong side. The different changes from purl to knit also make it difficult to keep the knit columns looking clean, which is why I have included a detail photo of where that change can be seen more clearly than in the pattern photo.
