Rope knitting – ロープ編み



Some time ago I found a Japanese rope maker in Tokyo. I bought some 3mm rope and currently knit a cardigan from it. As I want to make it not too heavy, I am using the ‘Double faggoting’ pattern from Barbara G. Walker, published in her book ‘Charted Knitting Designs’.

For the cast-on I was looking for something that reflects more on the rope. As I couldn’t find anything I liked, I created my own technique. It is based on a ‘Double Chain’ knot.
