Lily of the Valley

Lily of the valley_swatch 01_a

Yarn: Cascade 220, color: natural

Wraps Per Inch: 9 wpi

Needles: 5mm, US size 8

Gauge: 19 stitches in 4 inches

Pattern: Lily of the Valley

Stitch Count Repeat: Multiple of 27sts

Book: A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns

Page: 226

Difficult Techniques, if any: Slipping the first of the 4 stitches required to make the ‘lily’ knots can be a bit tricky because it is a little tight to get the needle inserted easily.

Comments, if any: Barbara Walker comments that the pattern would look more lily-like if the pattern were used upside down, but, in my opinion, right side up it looks more like a true stem of Lily of the Valley.
