GAUGE:
22 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Quilted Lattice pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Quilted Lattice pattern Notes: 1.

The Quilted Lattice pattern is written slightly differently for the Small Frame and the Large Frame.

Be sure to follow the pattern for the size Frame you wish to make.

2.

Slipping a st means that you are moving a stitch from your left hand needle to your right hand needle without knitting or purling it.

In this pattern, sts should be slipped as if to purl.

3.

It is important to practice the Quilted Lattice pattern when you make your swatch.

The yarn that is carried in front of the slipped sts on Rows 2 and 6 must be loose enough so that you can lift the strand on Rows 4 and 8.

4.

To sl 5 wyif (slip 5 stitches with the yarn held in front), bring the working yarn to the front (the side of the knitting that is facing you as you work this row), then slip the next 5 sts, one at a time as if to purl, from your left hand needle to your right hand needle.

NOTES:
One ball of yarn is sufficient to knit one small and one large frame.

Lay batting, then card stock centered onto fabric.

Apply a strip of double sided tape along top edge of card stock.

Fold fabric over tape and, working from center out, press to secure.

Rep on lower edge of card stock.

Rep for sides, trimming fabric at corners to keep it flat.

Turn cardstock over and arrange knitted piece neatly on top.

Use stapler to secure your work in place, as close to the edge as possible so staples won't show from the front! Work in the same way you did as when taping the fabric.
