Depth Perception

Lindsay Lewchuk 2022 New Releases, Patterns, Shawls

Is there anything more romantic than Depth Perception!  When falling in love it is the depth of your sweetheart that pulls you in and intrigues you to learn more.  In a knitting analogy that translates to taking the slipped stitch cables of our 2022 theme to new dimensions!  Depth Perception capelet introduces the technique to flat knitting with 2 stitch slipped cables growing up to 5 stitch slipped cables worked on the right side.  Find your favorite spot to deepen your relationship as you knit, then wear.   

The tech edited and test knit “adventurous-level” pattern is fully written and charted with a schematic, cheat sheet (on the blog), and pick up video tutorial.

Special Notes:

  • Cable It: check out the blog series “Guide to Slipped Stitch Cables” and the “Cheat Sheet” for a quick start guide for the multi-stitch cables.
  • Track It: since this garter slipped stitch design is worked flat, the color changes and numbering are similar to that of brioche.  Each Row number is worked twice: once with MC and once with CC.  So that’s two consecutive right side rows followed by two wrong side rows.  A circular needle is used to enable moving to the end to pick up the appropriate color where it was left off.
  • Stitch It: cabling only happens on the right side rows.  Wrong side rows are resting rows – stitches are either knit or slipped on MC rows and either knit, purled, or slipped on CC rows.
  • Watch It: Stitch in Focus – Pick Up and Knit from an I-cord multiple styles are shown, the double leg pick up starts at 2:25.
