The Stitches of Ida
She is not yet ready for her close up. But perhaps you are curious about the stitches of Ida. The last post was about the post work edge, so I'll spare you additional detail.
*NOTE: in all sections, gauge is what it wanted to be. I'm not too particular.
Section 1 Knit, seed stitch. Malabrigo Chunky which is a kettle dyed pure merino. Size US 11. A rectangle.
Section 2 Crochet, Tunisian simple stitch. Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky. Size 13 hook. Worked on two sides of Section 1 with a short row corner.
Section 3 Crochet, double crochet. Universal Yarn Classic Shades Frenzy. Size 13 hook. Connected to Section 2 and using an increase corner.
Section 4 Knit, garter stitch. The Malabrigo like Sec. 1. Size US 11 needles. Picked up from the crochet of Sec. 3. Also uses a short row corner.
Section 5 Crochet, extended single crochet. The Encore like Sec. 2. Same size 13 hook. Used an increase corner.
And then the border is worked all the way around. Still confused. This should help.
