Twists from 1984 - pattern from history - Pattern Duchess“Pattern from history” posts were born when my lovely grandmother gave me all (well, almost all) of her old pattern sheets. And it was many. She collected those years and years and I think it’s a fantastic reflection of knitting history of our little country.

To make this little bit personal, I try to put little bit history of Estonia behind the year of the pattern. And I try to add all that my grandmother can remember and can tell me.

I added “can tell me” because my granny is little protective of me – she shares what she thinks I can handle – I’m a sensitive nature you see ?

I love her for that, but I can’t always get the hole truth about all that have happened.

I have written about this year so I’m not gonna repeat my self again. Let’s talk about this pattern instead. Shall we?

This one is very simple. Only two rows of pattern and half of it in knit stitches. Of course, I felt enormous temptation to alter it.

You know – I could add lace here and there… I could make cables bigger… I could…. Oh well, never mind, it won’t be the same pattern then 🙂

I think it would be fantastic pattern for cardigan. I even can’t explain it. It just feels right on a cardigan.

Knit stitch pattern from 1984

Pattern repeat is 12 sts + 6 sts for symmetry.

Row 1: *k6, p1, RT, LT, p1* rep to last 6 sts, k6;

    I’m still praying for your stepfather. I went to my endocrine clinic appointment this morning and the Dr. Was asking me about my flowers. I had my I idle Fire HD with me so I showed him a few of the ones I had photos of on my device . Every thing looks good to him so I go back to see him again in Oct.

      Thank you so much 🙂 I’ve tried to avoid this topic as much as I can, but it’s hard and I’m glad you still thinking of us. I need good thoughts and I’m doing my best to keep the positive side. I will think about you too and send my good thoughts back at you 🙂
