Snowflake Knitting Chart V.2

For the past year, I have been working on designing Christmas stockings for myself and Keith. (Christmas 2009 passed before I was able to get started... whoops!) I'm getting closer on the design concept, but I have concerns about frogging portions of the stockings if I don't like how the charts come out.

My mostly symmetric snowflake knits more into a rectangle, so I wanted to test out a modification to see how it would knit up. (P.S. Thank you tempest468's "My First Snow" for using this chart in a washcloth. It came out beautiful, and functioned as a swatch for me. I just want to end up with something more symmetric for my stocking.)

I modified the stocking slightly, reducing 6 stitches from the width. The resulting snowflake, when knit with a 4 stitch seed stitch border, is more symmetrical. The chart, shown below, has the modified snowflake with the border that I used in my swatch.

Snowflake V. 1: 37 x 41 sts
Snowflake V.2: 31 x 41 sts

Snowflake version 2. The snowflake (in blue) is 31x41 stitches. In the knit square, the snowflake is surrounded by 1 stitch of knit stitches, and 4 stitches of seed stitch (shaded purple).

I knit the swatch on size 7 needles with remnant worsted weight yarn. I added the border to the swatch to make it something I can use, with the addition of some borders, for the 2010 Pine Street Inn Knit-a-thon!

Finished square size: 8.5" wide, 7.5" tall
Finished Snowflake Size: 6.5" wide, just over 6" tall.

  1. To respond to an emailed question:

    To achieve the textured look in the swatch I used K and P stitches. On the right side, I would knit for every white square in the chart, and purl for every blue square on the chart. (This would be reversed when you turn the work and are working on the wrong side.)
