Trellis

Trellis is finished, and just in the nick of time.
My neice (the impossibly cute recipient) turns one next Saturday.



Here's a photo of the finished item, lounging on the ottoman.



I must admit that I was getting sick of the pattern towards the end. But at least I didn't need to keep referring the chart.




I like working cables, I like the way the twist around, they make sense. Looking at where the stitches have come from, I can see where they're headed. Plus, I've figured out how to avoid using a cable needle (except for particularly tricky bits). So when I work through my current backlog, I might have another crack at this ...

I started using the zig zag rib on another project, but it was driving me batty, using the cable needle to move the stitches around every second row.


I almost forgot to mention ...

Trellis was knitted in Rowan All Seasons Cotton on 4.5 mm needles. The pattern is from knitty, and if you click here, you can have a look at it yourself.
