INSTRUCTIONS

1) VERSION WITH ONE CENTRAL STRING OF CABLED HEARTS

– CO 50 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.

I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.

– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.

Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.

– Work the next 6 preparation rows:

1) (RS) k15, p4, k12, p4, k15

2) k3, p12, k4, p12, k4, p12, k3

3) k15, p4, k12, p4, k15

4) k3, p12, k4, p12, k4, p12, k3

5) k15, p4, k2, (2B, k2, k2B), (2F, k2, k2F), k2, p4, k15

6) k3, p2, k4, p12, k4, p12, k3

– Continue working as follows:

3 garter sts, 12 stocking sts, CABLED HEARTS Stitch (see STITCH GLOSARY below) over 20 sts, 12 stocking sts, 3 garter sts.

Work 4 times the CABLED HEARTS pattern complete (i.e. 40 rows in cabled hearts pattern).

– Knit 4 rows.

– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.

If you want to make a teapot cozy, add an eyelet row and 3 more k rows before binding off. Knit another block in the same way, and join them. Leave open (do not seam) the center at each side, to accommodate the spout and handle. Pass a ribbon through the eyelets and your done!

 

 

2) VERSION WITH TWO STRINGS OF CABLED HEARTS

– CO 54 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.

  1. These are wonderful! I’ll have to come up with some ideas for how to use your cabled hearts. Maybe a pillowcase
