I produced this on my chunky machine - you set the ribber carriage to slip both ways, and select all the ribber needles opposite non-selected main bed needles. As the beds are at half pitch, I picked the needles to the immediate right. It doesn't matter what you pick, as long as you are consistent. The coloured sections are technically a tube with one colour either side - the pattern locks them together, as it were.
If Brother were still making knitting machines, a built in "reversible" switch would be top of my wish-list (plus lili buttons for bird's eye backing on the chunky). This is all done by hand, so takes some time. It can only be done on machine such as Brother, which pre-select the pattern. You wouldn't be able to see which needles were selected on a Silver Reed.
Brother MB carriage - KC (KCII if available), part/slip both ways
|2 row stripe||R carriage set to knit both ways, colours changed every 2 rows (2 cols only)|
|1 row stripe||R carriage set to K left, part/slip right|
|Plain backed||R carriage - K2 rows, part/slip 2 rows|
|Bird's eye||R carriage set to part/slip both ways, lili buttons and lili slide lever selected if available(can also set r carriage to tuck if required). Note if using lili buttons, there must be an even no of Ns in work on the ribber bed. If hand-selecting, ensure to select odds one row, evens the next.|
|Reversible||R carriage set to part/slip both ways, hand select RB needles opposite non-selected MB needles to D position|
Another Lizard Ridge square - this is a gorgeous colourway! I'm tempted to start steaming some of these squares and sewing them together. But then I'm worried I won't like the arrangement when they're all together. Checked back on the handknit pattern, and you're only supposed to do 4 repeats of the pattern and not 5. Never mind, it means I can make the afghan wider and use less squares in the height (4 squares JSH style = 5 squares Knitty style!)
