Back to Knitting Patchwork Style

Click on this picture and you will see that the sections are made as individual units, using two colors in a slip stitch pattern. One knits a 'shell' in this case, and then stitches are picked up and cast on to form the next shell. This way the motif is the accumulation that leads to the shape.

I particularly like working in the diamond pattern as shown in

way back when I first started this blog. I have sweaters made with the diamond patch (from www.justonemorerow.com) and two made with the square patch http://photos1.blogger.com/img/50/2437/640/VESTFRONT.jpg

Today I just finished a diamond patch cardigan and will have this picture up soon.

The vest is from the book Dazzling Knits and I finished it in September but thought you would like to see it now since I am wearing it often. It uses a slip stitch pattern and dk wool, size 8 dpns. Fun and fast.
I also finished the scarf from my midnight knit fest after our anniversary party at home. It is a verrrrryyyy long scarf.
