Beyer Strickschrfit 70635/16 – “Herbstblume” (“Fall Flower”)

Another Niebling with “basketweave” mesh, recharted using two versions of the original charts: the Beyer chart from 1959 and the Burda Special E 418 chart from 1996. There were minor errors in both charts! There was also one semi-significant difference on Round 191: after the first three stitches, the original (Beyer) version reads “p7, k21, p7, k5tog, p7, k21, p7” but is replaced in the Burda version with just “p35, k5tog, p35”. Don’t know which to suggest, so I included both. Finally, “purl 1 through back loop – in running thread” looks to be a bit of a challenge (there are quite a few of them, but only spread across 8 pattern rounds). Since I haven’t tried the stitch yet, am guessing it will help to rotate the left needle towards the body to make it easier to get to the back strand of the stitch. Will post if it doesn’t help, and feel free to comment with advice.

Happy Halloween All!
