Corrugated Shawl


#1

The sequence pattern in sec. 10 says “k5, p2, p1”. Really?


#2

Thanks for noticing this!

Section 10 should be k5, p2, k1.

I totally knit my Corrugated Wrap using k5, p2, p1 as it appears in the Field Guide without even a blink–so zoned out at that point! Row 10, if knit in this way, results in the same sequence as Section 7. Which is a lovely sequence, don’t get me wrong, but ideally each section should have its own distinctive pattern.

Many thanks for writing!

Silly question - on the wrong side of the project for the sequence section 1 is k2 p2 I am assuming the wrong side rows will be the opposite Purl the Purl stitches and knit the knit stitches - is that correct?


#4

Actually, that is a great question.
The stitch count is a multiple of 4 + 2 stitches. The repeat is knit 2, purl 2, ending with a knit 2.
Turn the work and start over with the knit 2, purl 2 sequence.
It’s going to result in columns of knit and purl garter stitch.

I have done 3 rows - k2 p2 each row - is this what it should look like? Thanks

This is from the shawl that I made, the light stitches might be easier to see. Although they are rather tiny.

On the reverse if you end with K2 should row 2 begin with p2 then the k2 p2?

After seeing Ann’s amazing sequences/log cabin blanket, I decided to dive in and knit the Corrugated Shawl. I’ve finished the first two sections and noticed that even though they are the same number of rows, Section Two is at least an inch longer. Is that correct? I’m using Tosh Pashmina btw. Thanks in advance!

The lengths can be different depending on how the stitches stack. Garter stitch requires more rows per inch than stockinette does.
Knit on, it will be beautiful.

Thanks!! I knew there could be a difference in row gauge but i’d Never seen it illustrated so dramatically. It’s a fabulous pattern and I can definitely see myself getting hooked on sequence knitting.
