C is for ….

Claw Pattern

Worked over 8 sts on a background of reverse St st.

Upward Claw – This is the one shown in the picture. I include the Downward Claw. (turn the picture upside down to see it 😉  )

Row 1 (right side): Knit

Row 2:  Purl

Row 3: Cable 4 back, cable 4 front  (If you don’t know how to cable there are hundreds of videos on you tube that will teach you how to do it. It’s not hard, just need to pay a little attention when you are doing it.)

Row 4: Purl

Rep these 4 rows.

Downward Claw

Row 1 (right side): Knit

Row 2: Purl

Row 3: Cable 4 front, Cable 4 back

Row 4: Purl

Rep these 4 rows.


Cellular Stitch – I thought this pretty appropriate considering everything is cell-this and cell-that. 🙂 The pictures that show how pretty this stitch is, come from a free pattern that I found. I am including the link to get the pattern for these projects. Although there may be small differences in how this person does the stitch, it is essentially the same and should look the same.
