Day 9

Standard

We were rockin’ out to Bach again today. Started with ‘Concerto for Harpsichord, Strings and Continuo No. 5 in F Minor’ before more Brandenburg Concerto’s. Very much enjoying this collection.

Today I used the Vulcan coloured Step by Austermann that I mentioned yesterday to make another rectangle. For this rectangle, only 1 side was cast on, but 3 sides were picked up.

I cast on 16 stitches, picked up 15sts along the righthand side  of day 8’s square, 1st between that square and day 6’s rectangle which it’s joined to, 15sts along the edge of that rectangle, 1st in the tip of day 4’s square and 15 along the  side of day 5’s big square. those 15sts should put you 16sts from the cast off tip. So, you have cast on or picked up : 16sts + 15sts + 1st + 15sts + 1st + 15sts = 63sts on your needle.

Now you will repeat the rest of the pattern from  day 6, which is helpfully reprinted here for you.

day 9

You can see in the picture how a yarn dyed to produce definite stripes looks compared to the other types of striped and patterned yarns discussed yesterday.
