I dub this design streamlines.
weather charts with streamlines.
Cookie A's Katrina Rib, which I knit in 2010. My yoke is even simpler because all 10 sections are patterned in 3x3 rib. Because of the different row gauge, I slowed down the lowest increases to every 5th row instead of every 4th row for 50 total yoke rows.
A back waist detail nips in the waist--perfect for those who need to make sway back adjustments when they sew. I saw that pretty touch in one of Elsebeth Lavold's Viking Knits books. It's such a good idea, it begs to be replicated.
The same cable appears at the center back and front chest. I stole the cable chart from Berroco's free pattern, Latoya, which I knit in 2007.
The tubular cast-on was my idea. That creates a k1-p1 rib. There's a bit of a discontinuity when changing from k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1 to k3, p3 because a k becomes a p and vice versa. However, it would be rude for someone to come up close enough to notice it.
Unsuitable for plaids or stripes. But Iris' Halloween costume is next up in the queue.
Sea surface temperatures typically peak in Sept-Oct so the days are perfect for walking on the beach. Warm days, cool nights. Ocean breezes. We really do live in paradise.
