The next swatch in my crazy quilt project is the Swiss Check Pattern from Barbara Walker’s, A Treasury of Knitting Patterns Vol 1, page 90. I knit this with Paintbox, colorway 300, Paper White, and colorway 329, Grass Green. It’s a fun color-change pattern. Note the caution about leaving the strand loose behind the three slipped stitches on rows 2 and 6. Also, slip as if to purl, and always slip with the yarn to the wrong side.
(Yes. I see the missed stitch in the lower right…nothing a little duplicate stitch won’t fix. 🙂 )
This is a fun pattern and might make a fun pattern for a jacket. Enjoy!
