Vintage Knitting Pattern

 

39.  Pretty Open Pattern (for Centre of a Shawl.) (#23)

 

Nine stitches to a pattern. For the centre of a shawl I have done it in white, with a deep shaded border in feather stitch, in German wool, and the effect is extremely good.

First row:—Seam 2, make 1, knit 2 together, knit 3, knit 2 together, make 1, and repeat.

Second row:—Seam 7, and knit 2 alternately.

Third row:—Seam 2, knit 1, make 1, knit 2 together, knit 1, knit 2 together, make 1, knit 1, and repeat.

Fourth row:—Seam 7, and knit 2 alternately.

Fifth row:—Seam 2, knit 2, make 1, slip 1, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over, make 1, knit 2, and repeat.

Sixth row:—Knit 2, and seam 7 alternately.
