Escalator Pattern

            More purl welts today, I don't know what it is about this pattern everyone I've shown it to says it's great, personally I think it's a bit silly it's just sequential purl welts! Barbra says its "fun", well I'm not sure about that but it certainly is quick to work despite the length of the pattern. and it looks like an escalator, or a set of stairs. Obviously. I'm a bit behind on the knitting at the moment, I've been too busy trying not to be a fat bastard and have started running away from zombies. So if the uploads are less regular that's why. 

 Simple purl welts on a knit background, not much to say about the pattern this week.

Swatch is as follows - 4ply - 2.5mm needles - 32st x 48st - Longtail CON - Surprisingly Stretchy COFF

Pattern for working flat:
CON multiple of 32st
Rows 1 & 3 - *K5, P11*
Row 2 - *K11,P5*
Rows 4 & 6 - *P*
Row 5 - *K*
Row 7 & 9 - P4*K5,P11*K5,P7
Row 8 - K7*P5,K11*P5,K4
Rows 10 & 12 - *P*
Row 11 - *K*
Rows 13 & 15 - P5*K5,P11*K5,P3
Rows 16 & 18 - *P*
Row 17 - *K*
Row 19 & 21 - K1,P11*K5,P11*
Row 20 - P4*K11,P5*
Rows 22 & 24 - *P*
Row 23 *K*

            Phew that's a long pattern! It's not hard once you get into the swing of it if you can "read" your knitting. It also knits up surprisingly quickly. Now I have to go run away from some zombies so, happy knitting!
