Elizabeth Knits Barbara January 2017

I know you all probably think I forgot about this project, although after my last post, you can see why I got a little sidetracked. But Elizabeth is still knitting Barbara, and I hope to make alot of progress on this in 2017. Hope you enjoy the latest installment!

Broken Rib Pattern (top)
Double Broken Rib (bottom)

Yarn Weight: DK
Needles: Size 6

Notes: I got a little curl along the sides, as you can see, but I think these are both beautiful options for a project like a sweater, where there is a seam on each side.

Notes: Definitely nice patterns, but would definitely need a border if you want to avoid curl.

Ripple St

Yarn Weight: DK
Needles: Size 9

Notes: I wasn’t sure if this would curl or not, so I started out with a garter st border, and ended without a border. It doesn’t curl and as you can see at the top, it makes a pretty curved edging. I happened to use a variegated yarn, but I probably wouldn’t again with this pattern, as I think the variegation hides the beautiful texture of this stitch pattern.

Yarn Weight: Worsted
Needles: Size 9

Notes: This is a beautiful teal color, which turned out to be difficult to photograph well, so my apologies. But this stitch pattern gives a thick, plush fabric and seems to work very well in a solid-colored yarn. It gives no curl at all, so you can use it as a stand-alone stitch pattern.
