The Plan

Update 2017. While we hoped we could revive this project it has not happened. If anyone is interested in taking over, please leave a comment.

Knit lots of hats and scarves for patients and survivors or breast and ovarian cancers to be donated to the Komen Foundation for the Cure, Philadelphia Affiliate. We fully support monetary fund raising efforts for the cure. But we also want to do something which will go directly to those who need to know there are people rooting for their health and survival. All skill levels are welcome!

Please join us! The 2011 project ends Sept. 15th.

Cabled Cord Rib

I really like this one. It's basically a mini i-cord done in a rib pattern.
You will need a double pointed needle or a cable needle for this pattern.

row 1: knit 4, then knit 2, purl 2 until the last four stitches, knit the last four for your edge.
row 2: knit 4, knit 2 and *slip these stitches back to the left hand needle, knit these two again, and repeat from * 2 more times, purl 2. Continue with this across the rest of the row - knitting the faux i-cord on the knit stitches and purling the purl stitches once. knit the last four stitches
row3: knit 4, slip next two stiches to double pointed needle (dpn), hold to the front of work, purl the next two stitches on the left hand needle, then knit the two stitches on the dpn. Repeat these across the rest of the row. knit 4
row4: knit 4, purl2, knit 2, until the last four stitches, knit the last four.
row5: knit 4, purl 2, knit 2, slip the 2 knit stitches back to left hand needle and knit again 3 times. Continue across the row to the last four stitches. knit the last four. note: this row is almost the same as row 2, just start with purls instead of knitting.
row 6: knit 4, slip 2 stiches to dpn and hold to the back of the work. knit 2 from left hand needle, purl two from dpn. Repeat these four across the row to last four stitches, knit 4.

Happy Knitting!
