Part Two had us jumping into the deep end with four different cables. In Part Three we are entering deeper waters with a total of six cables!
Section C forms the center of the piece and is adorned with a standard cable through the middle diamond. A right leaning and left leaning cable in Row 1 set the stage for the column of ordinary cables. Because this cable is vertical and does not travel across the fabric, it remains in all knit on the right side and all purl on the wrong side. With all of the fancy cables it is nice to return to the simplicity of a standard cable. I love how this classic cable adds another dimension to the design. Check it out for yourself in the photo below.
I have listed the yarn weights remaining after each of the six repeats in Section C. Each repeat used approximately 12-13 grams of yarn. If you are using more yarn than listed, a pattern repeat may be eliminated to conserve yarn and ensure that you have enough yarn to complete the pattern. At the conclusion of the entire pattern, I had 18 grams remaining in my second skein.
Speaking of second skeins, I joined mine in the 4th repeat of Section C. I added the skein by using the Russian Join since the chainette construction of Oh! makes it ideal for working this technique. The Russian Join locks the ends of the yarn together almost invisibly with no ends to weave in. Watch my Russian Join video for a complete tutorial.
Section D is a mirror image to Section B. The only difference is that Section D starts midway through the seeded diamond. For this reason I provide a separate chart and instructions to avoid confusion. Work Rows 1 – 20 twice, then Rows 1 – 10 again for a total of 50 rows. A close up photo of Section D is seen below.
As seen in the photo below, Part Three has a lot of knitting for this week. Part Four is quite short and I thought it best to give you more time to knit the bulk of the pattern before the end of the KAL. I want you all to finish it up by November 15 so you can enter the prize drawing!
Part Four has inventive buttonholes that are sure to delight you with their unique setting.
Don’t forget to download all of the instructions as they will not be available for free after November 30th.
See you next week!
