Use about 25 g of variegated sock yarn and another contrasting solid color. I used Ballard from Jojoland – sock weight wool. I have black, white and purple in stock ($4 per skein)
Cast on 39 stitches -
With solid color knit in pattern for 6 rows and then alternate between 2 rows of variegated and then 2 rows of solid.
Row 1 K1, P1 to end
Row 2 Slip 1 purlwise, K1, P1 to last stitch and slip purlwise
repeat these rows until you have reached desired length – finish with 6 more rows of pattern with solid color.
Heritage Silk yarn from Cascade feels great on your needles. It’s superwash Merino and Mulberry Silk. This pattern uses a double strand so it turns out thicker – 5 stitches per inch. The double cable runs down the front and the back.
The pattern was designed by Marilyn Peters and is on Cascade Yarns website. But after finding a few omissions, I rewrote it. I only have it in a medium size but if you’re able to adjust the pattern you could change for other sizes.
Enoy the yarn. It’s fabulous – I have a rich purple and fushia in stock.
