Walker Treasury Swatches

With much excitement, I have begun working on swatches to include in the Walker Treasury Project. I started with the Quaker Ridging from Barbara Walker’s first book, A Treasury of Knitting Pattterns. The swatch directions are on page 15.

The stats for Quaker Ridging are –

Yarn: Cascade 220
Wraps Per Inch:
Needles: U.S. 8s (5mm)
Gauge: 5 sts = 1”
Pattern: Quaker Ridging
Stitch Count Repeat:  Any number of sts
Book: A Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Page: Page 15

Also on page 15 is Waving Rib Pattern.

Yarn:    Cascade 220
Wraps Per Inch:
Needles: U.S. 8s (5mm)
Gauge: 7.75 sts = 1”
Pattern: Wavy Rib Pattern
Stitch Count Repeat: Multiple of 6sts
Book:    A Treasury of Knitting Patterns
Page:    Page 15

These two patterns are listed on the Walker Treasury Project as not worked yet, but I have now uploaded them to the Flickr Group pool’s Walker Treasury listings.
