Passap Doily in Cotton-Pattern Carole J. Thimidis

DSCF2500I am still doing short rowing and I have to tell you how I came upon this pattern. I saw a pattern for a round dishcloth and I loved how the outside was finished. The pattern was by Marg Coe and the pattern was available in the LK150 knitting machine group. I made the dishcloth on my passap out of sock yarn and it came out the size of a coaster. I have lent the sample out but will post when I get it back. I emailed Marg Coe and asked her if I could make that pattern larger because  I wanted to use it as a doily and not a dish rag. It is too pretty. She emailed me back and gave me some suggestions. So that is my next project in short rowing to share with you. When she answered me she sent me this pattern and told me that it comes out rather large and it is a doily. Well I had seen this pattern in the LK150 group and that was my next mission to find it. And here it shows up in my email!! Thank you Marg! So I used a cotton yarn, tension 6 on the passap. No console is needed and it is so very,very easy. I emailed Marg and asked if I could share this pattern with you. She told me that Carole was an instructor that gave this pattern to her and told her to share it with whoever she wanted . If you would like to try this pattern, just email me. It is written for machines that can pull needles to hold. I did a sample on the Brother to see how it was made. To make it on the passap,you can’t pull the needles to hold.  I cast on both beds , hung the comb and dropped the stitches off the back bed. I knitted several rows of waste yarn and followed her pattern . Since you can’t pull needles to hold on the passap you have to have 41 pushers under the 41 stitches. The lock has to be set to LX and GX on the back bed. When it says to pull two needles out to  hold, all you have to do is lower the two pushers to non working position. There is no wrapping of stitches and it knits rather quickly. I took my time so I did not drop any stitches. There are 16 wedges and I reset the row counter after finishing one wedge. I actually got to the point of memorizing the pattern and did not have to look at the sheet. I also used the one eye transfer tool instead of a multiple one since it was too easy to drop a stitch if all did not transfer.  I was going to crochet an edge but I think this is just lovely the way it is.

I am sorry I have not posted anything but the weather has been beautiful and I don’t want to stay inside. Also, I did not have a cable to download to my passap from a  laptop. I got rid of my pc and now I can download easier. I am now up and running and hope to be doing something soon before I forget how to use my passap and Brother machines. lol
