322.--Knee-cap in Knitting
Materials: For 1 pair, 4 oz. pink 4-thread fleecy wool, and a
small quantity of white ditto.
Begin each knee-cap by casting on with pink wool 114 stitches,
equally divided upon 4 needles, and joining them into a circle.
Upon this number of stitches work 47 rounds, alternately knitting
and purling 2 stitches. In the 48th round begin the gore which
covers the knee; it is worked separately backward and forwards,
always alternately knitting and purling 2 stitches.
After 2 rows change the pattern, so as to form small squares
Knit the first row of this gore upon 26 stitches slipped off from
the last row on to a separate needle. At the end of
each following row knit the nearest stitch of the nearest needle,
so as to increase 1 stitch in each row of the gore.
Continue in this way until only 42 stitches remain of the ribbed
part. After this work the remainder of the gore separately,
decreasing once at the beginning and end of each row till only 26
stitches remain; then take up 23 stitches of the selvedge on each
side of these 26 stitches, and work 47 rounds, alternately knitting
and purling 2 stitches.
The edging at the top and bottom of the knee-cap is worked in
crochet. With white wool make a chain of 50 stitches; turn and work
1 row of crochet à tricoter; then work a second row
thus: the first part, as usual, with white, but coming back, with
pink make 4 chain between each stitch, work in the same way on the
other side of the foundation chain, thus forming a small ruche, and
sew it on to the edge of the knitting.
