Here’s the pattern for the
in the Twitter Knitalong (#DDTwitKAL)
This is pair of wristers that I saw in a museum in Lithuania. Below is my adaptation.
Materials: 1 ball of Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport Weight in 2 colors. DPNs size 0&1, to get 9sts/in in 2-color St st w/lrg ndls.
Step 1: Cuff. With smaller ndls and main color, cast on 52 sts. Dist sts on dpns, join in the round. Work in k1, p1 rib for 1/2″.
Step 2: Increase to 64 sts on the next rnd. Change to larger needles and k 2 rnds. Attach color B (don’t cut MC), and knit 2 rnds.
Step 3: Work all rounds of chart.
Step 4: With B, k 2 rnds, then cut B. With MC knit 2 rnds.
Step 5: Set up ruffle. Next rnd: P3, k2, (p6, k2) to last 3 sts, p3.
Technique: Make2. W/left ndl, lift the strand btwn the last st worked & the next st on the ndl. Place strand on left ndle. K into front & back of the new loop to make 2 sts.
Step 6: Next rnd: P2, (k2tog, make2, ssk, p4) around, ending last rep with p2. Next rnd: Knit the knits and purl the purls.
Step 7: Next rnd: P1, (k2tog, k1, make2, k1, ssk, p2) around, ending last rep with p1. Next rnd: K the knits and p the purls.
Step 8: (K2tog, k2, make 2, k2, ssk) around. K 1 rnd. P 1 rnd. BO loosely kw. Weave in ends.
