Building in Color: Panel #5
This is Building in Color Panel #5 and it is finally complete. I've been getting very behind when it comes to these panels. I am also working on Panel #6 and Panel #7 at this time. I am teaching this class one panel each month and there are a total of 10 panels. It's July so we just started #7 yesterday. I told myself I had to get #5 (May's Panel) done by Sunday. I got it done just in time!
This panel was a slow knit. The skills learned in this panel include Make 1 Purl (M1P) and a Star Stitch. Make 1 Purl is an increase and the Star Stitch makes something that I could call a cluster. To complete the Star Stitch, you knit three and then cross the first knit stitch over the second and third knit stitches. The Star Stitch results in a decrease of one stitch. This panel's design results in a really nice, dense fabric. It's a fun panel to knit but just seemed to grow rather slowly.
