Fairisle & Lace Combo

Fiddling around on the Brother 940 as usual, thought I
would try my hand at a combination Lace & Fairisle;
it's been a few years since I've indulged in this type of Lace.

The small pattern file was one converted from a
handknit graph not so long ago,
was curious how it would look if I inserted some Fairisle.
Here are the 2 versions, one plain lace & one COMBO.

Brother Pintucks-a question answered

The overlapp can be made more pronounced by knitting a couple of extra rows on the main bed.

A friend's question hopefully answered.

A slightly overlapping Pintuck is required,
I have done somethig similar a few years ago
on a golfshirt collar, but this did not overlapp,
just stopped the collar ends from
curling under.
Here is the Test swatch.

Current test for a small overlapp of the pintuck.

Fern Lace 12stitchx12rows

Just for fun, a comparison of 2 old Fern-lace patterns
& the different ways they can be programmed
&still achieve the same result
the swatch shows them knitted in one piece.
These patts. can be used as an overall design or just 3-4 repeats for an
horizontal edging.
There are sooo many various scalloped edgings around, from the small ones to
very large ones.

Remember that for Mylars or punchcards, the patt.graphs need to be flipped horizontally.
