king charles brocade

I adapted this pattern from the Harmony Guide, Lace and Eyelet Stitches, E. Knight, Collins & Brown, London, 2007. Something similar was the pattern on a vest worn By King Charles to his execution. It's an easy knit, very simple to memorise.

Wool is from Katie and is called Voodoo. the colour changes are subtle and the wool is lovely to knit. A better idea of the colour can be seen here. The western late afternoon sun has washed out the colours here.
