REVAMP - tweety pi redux

MMario's picture

a while ago I knocked off a pattern I named "tweety Pi" because it was a bad pun. Recently one of the ladies out at MMarioKKnits finished test knitting it - and the picture made me realize I had a pretty serious flaw in the pattern

It still looked good, especially since she introduced a change in the final design element (offset a row of diamonds that I had written as stacked) - but I've revamped the pattern in a way that should be more attractive. attached are the old file (tweety Pi.pdf) and the new file (TweetyPi.pdf)

Just realized I should have at least copied the URL of the picture - but I didn't and can't from work. If you belong to MMarioKKnits then you can pop over and take a look at Tina's work - otherwise, it will have to wait until I can ask her for permission to repost it.

I just designed it - I didn't knit it. but it was doubled strands of Misti Alpaca lace - a total of six skeins (about 2500 yards because she doubled it - about 1300 knit)

yeah - but it would look

yeah - but it would look better if the repeats were centered - which is the change I made - it's just a nine stitch move after each doubling once the pattern starts.
