Описание закладки Judy's Seashell Bookmark
This pattern was developed as part of an analysis of a lace pattern by the Knitted-Lace List members. A full writeup of the Shell Edging Deconstruction project is archived on the Knitted-Lace Home Page.
The finished bookmark, as shown in size FF silk beading thread worked on needle size 0000, measures about 2.5 inches wide and just over 7 inches long. In size 20 cotton thread on 00's it is about 3 inches wide. It can, of course, be worked to any length.
Orientation to the knitting
This bookmark is made by knitting the scallop shell on the lower end, picking up stitches along the sides and base of the shell and knitting upwards, back and forth across the full width for as many repeats of the shell pattern as desired. One final repeat of the shells is worked, knitting another scallop shell in the center instead of the cowries and eyelet triangle that are part of the main pattern.
Because various parts of the separate patterns are repeated later, on the first occurrence I'll label it with the pattern name and row number, (like "cowrie 4" for the 4th row of the cowrie pattern), for later reference. For this pattern, I think the written-out version is fairly easy to follow, and a chart would be difficult, so I'm not giving a chart.
"ssk" means "slip, slip, knit"--that is, slip 2 sts one at a time as if to knit, put left needle through the front of these two sts, and knit them together through their back loops.
"s2kp" means slip 2 (together, as if to knit), knit one, pass the two slipped stitches over.
"OO" means two yarnovers. At the beginning of a row this is done by wrapping the thread twice around the needle before working the SSK. It makes a large decorative loop on the outer edge of the lace, which is knitted only once on the return row.
"kd" means "knit and drop"-- used for working the OO you come to at the end of each row: knit the first loop and drop the other. This makes the decorative outer loops.
"Shell back" means the standard plain back side (the even numbered rows) of the shell pattern, which are all worked like this: OO, ssk, (k1, p1 into OO), k across to marker.
"x 9" means work the indicated instruction nine times altogether.
I've used vertical bars to separate the center cowrie panel from the outer shell edgings. You'll have a ring marker on your needle at each of these two points. Within the shell edging instructions, I've used semicolons to separate the eyelet triangle, the shell itself, and the outer loopy trim.
