Creeping Vines pattern

Creeping Vines

There seems to be out there in knitting land a bit of confusion to the written pattern of Creeping Vines that I posted in my stitch library.

There were a couple of errors in the pattern and I apologise for this. These errors have now been corrected and an updated version of the pattern is now in the stitch library.

I have found that Creeping Vines is one of those patterns where breaking the stitch numbers down into manageable ‘bits’ using markers make it easier to keep the pattern correct.

I am knitting a cardigan based on the Creeping Vines pattern and having markers are a lifesaver.

In the stitch library version, I have knitted a swatch of 47 stitches, (being 2 repeats of 22 plus 3). This means placing a marker after the following stitch number:

Row 1:                 13, M1 22, M2 12

Row 3:                 3, M1 22, M2 22

Row 5:                  19, M1 22, M2 6

Row 7:                 20, M1 22, M2 5

Row 9:                  21, M1 22, M2 4

Row 11:                22, M1 22, M2 3

Row 13:               23, M1 22, M2 2

Row 15:                24, M1 22, M2 1
