Vachel’s pattern

Little Dee is the best comic strip since Calvin and Hobbes left the scene. It doesn’t hurt that Vachel, the vulture, is a knitter. He’s also the snarky one (my kids may now commence teasing.) If you go to you’ll see Vachel’s pattern, which doesn’t work for a straight-line pattern, but if you’re trying to knit a vulture’s wing, it’s perfect.

WOW, I looked at that pattern, and decided that it was probally non sense, and didn’t bother decifering it. KUDOS to you for deciding to see what it did. 🙂

Hey Alison, did you notice that he posted about your experiment on HIS blog?

Hee. I misread his instructions, but made a swatch anyway – it’s all about the process, right? Mine was
Row 1:*K2, sl1purlwise, k1, yo, psso*
Row 2: purl,

and it created a pretty little plaited effect. I’ll post a pic up on my blog (sometime).

But mine did make a square. Trippy.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

I am having a problem with the sl 1 purlwise. Do you turn the work?
