Elderly people, or those at all inclined to rheumatic
twinges, appreciate the knee-cap, and a pair of them
will make a most acceptable gift to grandpa or grandma.
No. 12 steel needles and Germantown yarn were used for
the model, which may be made more or less heavy, as desired,
by choosing coarser or finer yarn.
Cast 35 stitches upon each of three needles and knit
around 30 times in single rib—that is, knit 1, purl 1, alternately.
You are now ready to begin the gore, which may
be done in single rib, like the rest, or in basket-stitch (or
other fancy pattern) as in the model.
Take 26 stitches on one needle, leaving all other stitches
idle; take a stitch from each side every time across until but
42 stitches are left on both idle needles. Narrow at the end
of the busy needle each time until but 26 stitches are left
on the busy needle. Take up 23 stitches on the selvage at
each side, divide the stitches evenly on the three needles,
and you should have the original number of 35 stitches on
each of the needles. Again knit 30 rows in single rib, bind
off loosely, and finish with a simple crocheted border of
chain-loops or shells caught down in every other stitch.
To knit the gore in basket-stitch, * purl 6, knit 2; repeat
for 3 rows, then knit 1 row plain; repeat 1st 3 rows, placing
the 2 plain stitches exactly in the center of the 6 purled
stitches of previous rows. This change, made after each
plain row, gives the woven- or basket-effect, and the pattern
is a very pretty one for sweaters.
