Vermonter Rug Pattern #9259

Approximately 24 x 32 inches.


CLARK'S O.N.T. COTTON RUG YARN, 6 balls each of 2 shades of any color.
Milward's Casein Knitting Pins, 1 pair No. 6 (4¼ mm. size).

Starting at one end, with dark shade, cast on 100 sts. Measuring from last stitch on needle, mark off 5 inches of yarn. Double the yarn at this point and knot the doubled end, making a loop 1½ inches long. Measure off 5 inches from knot and make another loop in same way, (knots will be about 3 inches apart). Continue making knots and loops in same way, until there are about 40 loops made. Cut through loops and work as follows: 1st row: Knit across, having all ends on one side of work. 2nd row: Knit until you reach a knot; then purl 1 st, thus making the ends fall on same side as previous ends. Attach light shade, make about 40 knots and loops as before, cut through loops and work 2 rows with light shade.
   Continue to work 2 rows with dark, and 2 rows with light, alternately until rug measures about 32 inches, ending with dark shade. Bind off, using yarn that has not been knotted.
