For those interested in cotton yarns...I have found two very economical yarns that are better than most. Both types are 3.5 ounces under $3. The first is from Herrschners, it is their brand called Heritage Cotton. This is not their "lower end" cotton but a new product and has great colors. The Willow Sudsy and Willow Sudsy Spray are from Herrschners sister site Willow Yarns but you can go to the Herschners site which has both yarns listed on their site. To get more info you can go to https://www.herrschners.com/ Willow is located at the top left of the page and also has free patterns.
I don't know if everyone is aware of this but Peaches N Creme has come out with a new line of cotton yarn called "Premium". Right now there are 8 colors (check them out at http://www.peaches-creme.com/Premium.htm)
Anyway, I thought it would be nice to come up with a design to show off their colors. They sponsors all of our games and our yearly calendar by providing yarn and we just wanted to recognize them for providing endless fun for us.
The cloth is listed below. It is a lace and ridge cloth, on the order of feather and fan but I wanted to make a cloth that had scallops in it showing off all of the colors. I named the cloth using the same initials as their company (P-N-C). The name of the cloth is "Promises N Color". There are two other colors being added to this line so make sure you check the site regularly.
Size: One Size Finished Measurements: 8 ¼ X 8 ¼ Materials: US #6 Knitting Needle, 1 Skein of Peaches N Crème “Premium” yarn (Pictured in photo: Dk Pansy Ombre #214.)
This cloth is dedicated to the new “Premium” colors from Peaches N Crème. I made the name of the cloth fit the initials of the company (P-N-C). It is a cloth in lace and ridges. It is similar to the Feather N Fan cloth but the decreases are P2Together instead of K2Together to make a scallop effect on the row.
Cast On: Multiple of 11 stitches (I used 4 stitches for the border making the total = 37 stitches)
Border: Row 1: K1, P1 Across Row Row 2: K1, P1 Across Row
Repeat the above sequence of rows till cloth is size you want it. (I repeated the sequence of rows 11 times and then repeat rows 1 and 2 once more. Border: Row 1: K1, P1 Across Row Row 2: K1, P1 Across Row Bind Off
Hi all, just wanted to bring something to your attention on the above cloth. Someone was nice enough to contact me and let me know about one of the rows being "off". After row 33; add row 33A: K2, P36, K2
That row will need to be done to prepare the cloth for the next sequence of rows. This change was just to add another Purl row before starting row 34.
Hi and it's been a while, I am just getting around to posting on my blog, it has been a rough few months personally and what I need to get back to is working on the calendar for 2009, which I love working on.
As I do some designs that I am not going to use for the calendar, I will pass along. A few months back I promised a lace cloth to someone and can't remember who it was but anyway I am posting it here for those interested in trying something different. This particular pattern I was trying different types of lace stitches with as an experiment with using one as a border pattern and the other in the body of the cloth. They were separated with stockenette rows. The lace pattern for the border, although it is hard to see resembles little baskets. So you can use part or all or whatever if you wish.
Materials: Size 7 Needles Cast On: Multiple of 7 + 2 + Border: 40 (28+2+10=36) Color: 1 Skein Cotton Yarn, I used Bright Pink
