An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Wednesday, July 30, 2014
One of my favourite jokes goes: 'What's the difference between an eagle and a table? They both fly, except for the table'. The pattern instructions for the grafting reminded me of that joke, 'For the next 2 sts, rep steps 1-4, except work knitwise (step 1) purlwise (step 2)..... Luckily there was also a chart for the grafting. After reading articles about grafting and boggling my mind, I copied the chart out on a big piece of paper and then ticked off the steps as I did them. My grafting is far from perfect, but is more or less correct. The pattern from Interweave Press is by Daniel Yuhas.
