More Decorative Raglans

I came across more decorative raglans  while cleaning up. These are in an article from Machine Knitters Source 1999 Jan/Feb. The article is by Irene Woods.

The reason that 4 is not on the first picture is because I was doing both side decreases and used the ones that were the same every so many rows. There are three more in the article but they look similar to the last ones I did.

See, the reason I am doing all of these samples is so when I die, the next person won’t have to struggle to learn the machines! lol  Just kidding  🙂

Magic Windows on the Passap with the U 100

This is the last sample in the article in Machine Knitters Source Nov/Dec 1999 by Barbara Corley. It is call Magic Windows. I started this design in 2 colors and I believe there is an error in the pattern. The lower part has too many solid rows in it compared to the picture in the magazine. At the top I eliminated one step and the rows of color were narrower like picture and I added a third color. This can be done in 1,2,3 or 4 colors. At one point in the pattern there are 7 stitches on one needle on the back bed(it makes the puckers between the solid parts) and I never would have believed they would knit off okay. If you are looking for texture, this is the pattern for you.

Below are her instructions but on the last part of the pattern it says color 1 , 4 rows and the beginning of the pattern says 4 rows of color one. I believe this should only be done one time. Left click on picture to enlarge.
