PAT­TERN NOTES

Each Tu­nisian row is worked in 2 steps: the for­ward pass and the re­turn pass to work loops off hook. Each ver­ti­cal bar of row 1 counts as a stitch. First loop on hook is counted as a stitch un­less oth­er­wise stated. You may find it eas­ier to count rows from wrong side of work. Do not skip first chain from hook to work stitches on foun­da­tion row. There are 4 stitch mark­ers used to sep­a­rate the ca­ble pan­els from the tex­ture pan­els. Place stitch mark­ers around re­turn pass chain be­tween stitches. Move mark­ers up in place with each row. Once ca­ble tex­ture pat­tern is es­tab­lished, these mark­ers may be re­moved if de­sired. A 5th stitch marker is placed at the right sel­vage to mark the ca­ble cross­ing row. This aids in count­ing rows be­tween cross­ings. Move marker up at the be­gin­ning of each new cross­ing row.

SPE­CIAL STITCHES

Work loops off hook (work lps off hook): Ch 1 (see A of il­lus­tra­tion), [yo, pull through 2 lps on hook (see B of il­lus­tra­tion)] across. Last lp on hook counts as first lp of next row.
