Here’s a stitch pattern that I have admired for a long time and finally decided to knit it. It’s called Candlelight.
This is one repeat of the pattern on U.S. Size 7 knitting needles and using worsted weight yarn.
I am a little disappointed in this pattern. All the photos that I admired showed multiples of this pattern and the “candle flames” all interlock. Knitting only one repeat of the pattern does not give the full effect of the pattern. I also envisioned this pattern being much smaller. If I knit this again or use it in a design, I would use either fingering or dk weight yarn and smaller needles. Maybe that would give me the effect that I envisioned.
This pattern does not lie flat either. The center section is raised.
Any suggestions for a design that uses this stitch pattern? I can’t think of any so this swatch will just go into my notebook for the future.
