|Knitting Pattern Cards|
No matter how hard I try to keep track of stitch repeats and which row I am knitting, I ultimately get lost, so I end up frogging repeatedly.
At the first Brickless shawl/scarf class, Vicky offered the participants blank flash cards (2" x 3") for a small fee.
How do the cards work?
The Brickless pattern has three repeats:
Lace section - twenty rows - represented by the pink cards in the photos
Garter Stitch section - ten rows - represented by the green cards
Ribbed Part - fourteen rows - represented by the salmon cards
Written on each card is a SINGLE row. When a row is knit, the card is flipped to the back and the next row is visible.
This technique made knitting the Brickless painless.
When I need to stop, I place the "just finished this row" sticky note on the card. No confusion, no frustration, and a near perfect project.
I knew I'd use this technique on future projects, so I ordered a box containing 1,000 unpunched cards.
Blank flash cards can be purchased pre-punched or plain - just Google "colored, blank flash cards."
Thanks for introducing me to this easy and helpful technique, Vicky!
