The Lucky Clover wrap was really next in the line of knitting projects. But, there are only so many eyelet-patterned wrap sweaters a person can knit in a row. Believe it or not, It did not occur to me how very similar the Rebecca wrap and the Lucky clover are until I was already midway through the former. The mohair must have thrown me off.
Traveling with me this weekend are the materials to begin a Ribby Cardi.
Peruvian Wool from Elann.com in Mesa Teal, Size 6 and 7 circular needles, and a pre-highlighted pattern.
Two 3-hour train rides await.
I planned to knit an allover-ribbed version. The pattern calls for a combination of k2,p2 and k3,p1 ribbing. But why two different ribbings? This doesn't make sense to me. Is it so the 3x1 area will lie flatter? I want it to look the same, so I am going to try an allover 2x2 rib. According to my calculations, the pattern decreases *should* still work.
