Creative Knitting - - CONTENTS - De­sign by Mar­gret Will­son

Cre­ate a wo­ven look by sim­ply mov­ing the con­trast color to back or front as you work in stock­inette stitch. This pil­low is a stun­ning ad­di­tion to any decor.

Gauge

8 sts and 12 rows = 4 inches/10cm in St st. 9 sts and 13 rows = 4 inches/10cm in Wo­ven pat. To save time, take time to check gauge.

Spe­cial Ab­bre­vi­a­tions

With B in front (wBif): With B (weav­ing yarn) held in front of work as it faces you. With B in back (wBib): With B (weav­ing yarn) held in back of work as it faces you.

Spe­cial Tech­nique

Weav­ing: Wo­ven fabric is worked with 2 yarns: the work­ing yarn and the weav­ing yarn. All sts are made with the work­ing yarn; the weav­ing yarn is taken to the front or back of fabric as in­structed to cre­ate the wo­ven pat, but it’s never used to make a st. To change the po­si­tion of the weav­ing yarn, bring it be­tween the nee­dles (ei­ther to the front or back of the work as it faces you) as in­di­cated. Twist col­ors A and B at beg of each weav­ing row to an­chor weav­ing yarn. At end of each weav­ing row, ad­just ten­sion of B if nec­es­sary. It should nei­ther sag nor pucker, but lie evenly across color A sts.

Pat­tern Notes

Twist col­ors A and B at be­gin­ning of each weav­ing row to an­chor weav­ing yarn. Cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used so that stitches are not bunched up dur­ing ten­sion ad­just­ment; do not join. When nec­es­sary to cut and re­join B, leave a 6-inch tail for weav­ing in.

A chart is pro­vided for those pre­fer­ring to work wo­ven pat­tern from a chart.

Col­ors A and B will be re­versed for 2nd side of pil­low.
