So I have been playing with a new-to-me stitch pattern, and I’ve gotten it charted, written-up, re-charted, and knitted far enough into it now to show everybody. As with most “new” patterns available these days, this is not an entirely original concept of mine, but an adaptation or variation from several versions of the much-loved “Falling Leaves” stitch pattern. I have re-written the charts my own way, along with writing my own text instructions, so in that sense it is “my” pattern.
I’ve been showing it on Facebook, and sent the most recent corrected write-up to those to whom it had been promised.*
So, here it is.
I am using a size 5 circular needle, and knitting with 2 balls of Primo Lace, a yellow and a green
The upper picture was taken to show the ‘raw’ state, unblocked. You can see how, in this state, an afghan or baby blanket would be just the right amount of scrunchy for comfort. When it is blocked out it will lie flatter, and highlight the lace detail better.
To better highlight the separate repeating columns, you could easily insert a column of 2 purl stitches between the repeats.
I will not be selling the pattern separately until August, but through the end of July I will be giving it away with the purchase of any two skeins of yarn purchased as a custom dye order. This isn’t stated there yet, as that whole page has to be corrected anyway, but if you place a new custom dye order
today now through the end of July, you’ll still get a copy of the pattern package.
* to whom was it promised? Part of the deal with buying a cone to help my inventory is that besides getting 3 skeins of yarn when the cone arrives, you also get the occasional early release of a new pattern for a year following your cone purchase, or early deals on new colorway options before others see it, or some other “insider” treat, as my thanks for your support.
