Vintage Knitting Pattern


36.  A Swiss Pattern for the Top of a Mitten or Muffatee. (#30)


Cast on 26 stitches on 3 needles. Begin by seaming the first stitch, knit the second, and slip it on the left-hand needle, bring the 1 from behind over, which decreases a stitch; knit the 3 next stitches plain, pass the thread in front of each of the 2 next stitches and knit them, which increases and makes the holes; then knit 3 more plain, and decrease again as above; then seam a stitch; and so on all round: after each round done in this way, knit a plain round.
