Story

I can still recall many of the inside covers of my school jotters: by the time the last term of the year ended I had covered every millimetre of space with drawings and doodles surreptitiously done whilst listening to a lecture I considered, in my youthful folly, to be tedious and boring. In my teenage years, I would invariably grace the empty page with a depiction of whichever musician or actor was my heart-throb of the moment, and then I would gradually fill all the spaces with doodle designs, each one creating a different space for the next in a similar fashion to Celtic manuscripts. My Graceknot design is typical of such a doodle and it was the first knitted knot I designed which started and ended with a single stitch.

It is a simple knot to knit and, unlike my heavily-worked jotter pages, I have tesselated them in a very orderly fashion and worked them carefully to fit the slightly A-line shape of the body and to fit elegantly into the set-in sleeves. I made the collar using the same knots but turning them and closing them off to fit the collar shape. This is a design which is easy to knit but does require attention to ensure that the knots are placed exactly as given in the instructions.
