wedgette

A few weeks ago the “fans of norah gaughan” group on Ravelry reached 2000 members, which I declared cause for celebration. I asked the members for celebratory suggestions. Someone suggested a KAL and someone else requested a new pattern just for the group. So, I decided to make a new pattern for the occasion and the knit along has begun. I’ll be posting all of the information here – you don’t even have to belong to Ravelry. Why wouldn’t you want to though? It’s so much fun to see what other knitters are doing, and of course, if you need help, you have a built in and experienced support group.

NOTE: THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE DESIGNER INSTRUCTIONS – THERE MAY BE MISTAKES! I’ll correct mistakes as they are brought to my attention.  I’m not knitting this one, the members of the Ravelry group are my test knitters (or is it guinea pigs)  :)

 

First, the schematic, in 7 sizes:

A fun way to test your gauge is to knit the wedge scarf, free pattern on the Berroco web site.

Now, to get started:

scarf as gauge:

40 sts seven and a half ” across widest point

40 sts = a generous 7” in garter st

size 5 needle 3.75mm

 

ST ST GAUGE:

5.75 sts = 1″

23 sts & 32 rows = 4″ (10 cm)

garter st 23 sts = 4”

Wegette cardigan“skirt”

Cast on 68(70-70-72-74-74-76)sts

Wedge with garter:

Knit 12 rows. Purl one row.

Short row lace wedge (starts on a RS):

1&2 – (Yo, p2tog) to the end, turn

repeat rows 1 &2  4 times more (10 rows total)

3&4 – (Yo, p2tog) 32 times, turn

5&6 – (Yo, p2tog) 24 times, turn

7&8 – (Yo, p2tog) 16 times, turn

9&10 – (Yo, p2tog) 8 times, turn

Knit 12 rows.

Stockinette st Separator: Work 1.75(2-2.25-2.5-2.75-3-3.25)“ in stst (starts and ends with a RS row).

Work wedge with garter  and separator 4 times more, then work wedge once more, Binding off on last row of garter st. (last knit row).

    Very nice project. I’m a beginner-intermediate knitter but it looks not too complicated. Thanks for the scarf link to try it out on.
