Alternatives to ribbing on the Passap #3


This sample is called Mock Cable(reversible) This is the right side of the fabric. I did not have two pushers on the front bed in the proper position at the beginning and that is why there is a mistake in the lower right. I used a loose tension for the sample. I ued a tension 5 but would definitely lower it and also might put elastic at cuff if the cast on does not look better with a lower tension. This is created by casting on a number of stitches(multiples of three) in 1×1 rib. AfterTubular cast on (N/N,2 ROWS CX/CX AND ONE ROW N/N) the needles are set up alternating three up and three down on both beds. All the pushers on the front and back bed are out of work except for one on each side of the groups of three stitches along both beds. See the picture to the left for the set up of needles, pushers and the lock changes. This looks the same on the back side of the fabric also.

    This is rib is very cool! You posted at a very opportune time for me. I agreed to demo again at the knit seminar & I have prepared a class on rib alternatives. Hope it is okay to mention this. Joyce
