This sample was knitted with Lustersheen and the Knitsmart
keyplate 15, comparable to the Bond keyplate 1. This eyelet pattern is very
easy and it speeds things up a lot to use the multiple transfer tools as each
stitch, except for the solid portions, is transferred to its neighbor on every
third row. The solid blocks show that those stitches are to be transferred to
the next needles in the direction in which the carriage will be moving on that
row, the pattern begins with the carriage on the right. When I knitted this
pattern, after all the transfers had been completed, I pushed all the needles
out to holding position first, then back to forward working position with a
long ruler. That was much faster and there were less stitches dropped than if
I tried to forward each needle that was now empty to working position. This
would make a nice curtain fabric, I think.
Knitting and Transfer Chart
The blank rows on the chart are knitted plain. This pattern
is 60 stitches wide and 149 rows high. When the first square of a row is solid
and on the right side of the chart, the stitches are transferred to the left.
When the first square of a row is solid and on the left side of the chart, the
stitches are transferred to the right. If I only knew how to put numbers on
a chart this size, I would have numbered the rows and put little arrows too
but so far I haven't figured that out yet. Any suggestions?
