FO: The Long Gray Cardigan
Hi!

I finished my Long Gray Cardigan. A model by Lana Grossa, Basics No. 7 (German magazine, a little older).



Details are on my Ravelry page.

I really liked the pattern detail on the top:


These elongated stitches are created with 2 yo that are dropped on the WS row and the corresponding stitch slipped up for another 3 rows before it is cabled with the strand it runs up (goes over left or right by 2 stitches).

The effect is great and it is easy and intuitive to do.

thanks, girls.
Those stitches were the thing that drew me to the sweater. I am wearing it right now and I love it.

Hi!
yes, those are great. Here is how they work:

I do a k3 p1 ribbing, right?
row 1
Now when I get to the first knit I make 2 yo then that first knit. then I work on in my general rib.
Now I get to the last knit of the next rib and I make 2 yo before that knit as well.
To make the long stitches go "appart and back together" you alternate the sides of the rib you make those stitches on, but the 2 yo always go before the stitch.

row 2
Now you work the first row on WS: work all stitches as they appear (k your k, p your p) with the exception of the stitches followed by the yos. those you just slip purlwise and drop both yo at the same time.

row 3
now RS: work all stitches as they appear and slip the "slacky" stitches purlwise.

row 4
WS: the same as just before: work all as they appear and slip those guys.

row 5
RS: when getting to a knit rib: cable the elongated stitch either to the left or the right over the rest of that k3 rib (that really looks like a k2 at this point).

row 6

WS: k your k and p your p

row 7 or row 1, repeat 2
make the yo- stitches right above where the long stitches ended and start over.

Of yourse all slipping happens with the yarn towards the WS-side of the fabric (once infront of your work, once behind, but always to the WS)
This is all you do.

Variations are easy: more yo and higher lifting / further stretching or fewer yo and less traverse / elevation.

I am also thinking of crossing 2 of those stitches over one another... might be a neat repeat for a hat, maybe with more ribbing...
