Subject: Knitlet - the 3rd one

Hello Friend,

It's so nice to "see" you again.

"Knitlet"s third swatch is the pattern that readers have been asking a lot. I was going to make a blog post about it but thought I'll give you the privilege to get it first. It's a magnificent pattern with bobbles and a bit of cable work.

To warn you, nothing quick. Bobbles will take the usual knitting speed down, cables as well. But it's totally worth it.

For this swatch, I used DROPS Baby Merino yarn and 3 mm needles (US 3 / UK 11). I love how this yarn emphasizes the cables with knit and purl stitches. But any fingering weight yarn will do.

Here's the swatch:
The pattern is worked over 14+2 stitches. You'll need a minimum of two pattern repeats (14+14+2 sts), but I recommend at least 3 to see the real effect of this pattern. 

For this swatch, I casted on 64 stitches - 3 for edging, 56+2 for the pattern (total of 4 pattern repeats), and 3 for edging. 
Abbreviations:

RS - right side;
WS - wrong side;
sts - stitches;
rep - repeat;
K, k - knit on RS, purl on WS;
P, p - purl on WS, knit on RS;
yo - yarn over;
ssk - slip, slip, knit together through back loop;
k2tog - knit 2 stitches together;
MBB - make bobble before the next stitch (between 2 sts) 
2/2/2 LCP - slip 2 sts onto cable needle and hold in front, slip next 2 sts on another cable needle and hold in back, knit 2 sts from the main needle, purl 2 sts from the cable needle on back and knit the 2 sts from cable needle on front

Note! On every so-called "bobble row" (rows 13 & 27) you will have one stitch more per bobble as you increase the bobble between stitches. You will decrease them on your next row.
