The Cavandoli Pattern

• Mow is the time to get acquainted with the graph. Each square on the graph represents one complete knot, either a DHH or a YDHH. You have already completed Row 1, a row of MTKs and Row 2, a row of horizontal DHHs.

Note: All of the white boxes represent horizontal DHHs. All of the colored boxes represent VDHHs.

5. Row 3 Bring the Runner back to the right to begin the Cavandoli pattern as illustrated on the graph. This same cord, the Color B cord, will be used to start the pattern of VDHHs. Make a VDHH on warp cords //I & 2. Bring the Runner to the right behind all the remaining vortical cords and off to the side (see Figure 4). Put an extra pin in your knotting board about an inch from the side of the knotted piece. When not in use, the Runner(s) can be draped over the pin to be kept out of the way until they are needed again (see Figure 6). Do this on both sides.

6. Adding a new colored Runner Cord - Position the new Color C Runner Cord to the right of warp cord #3. Thread the tail upward and behind Rows 1 & 2 so that about an inch of the new cord protrudes above Row I. Tape the tail in place with masking tape. The longer pari of the cord should be in the correct position to make a VDHH onto the third vertical warp cord (see Figure 5). Then make another VDHH around the fourth warp cord. Bring the RC to the right behind all the remaining vertical cords and drape over the pin.

7. You will now be adding the final Runner. Follow the same procedure as you did when adding the previous Runner. Position the new Color D Runner Cord to the right of warp cord #5. Thread the tail upward and behind Rows 1 & 2 so that about an inch of the new cord protrudes above Row 1. 'Jape the tail in place with masking tape. The longer part of the cord should be in the correct position to make a VDHH onto the fifth vertical warp cord. Then make another VDHH around the sixth warp cord. Bring the Runner to the right behind all the remaining vertical cords and drape over the pin.

8. Bringing a Runner Cord back into "play" - The graph pattern calls for you to bring the Color C Runner back into play for VDHHs on warp cords 117 & 8. Simply remove the Color C Runner from the drape pin and bring it back into position behind Cd #7. In most cases you don't need to worry about the position of the other Runners that are to the rear of the warp cords, they won't show once you make the VDHHs. Continue across the row, alternating the Runners in this manner, according to the pattern.

9. Rows 4-12 Follow the graph as indicated, paying close attention to each knot and whether you need to switch Runners and/or whether the knot is a DHH or a VDHH. Go over each row after you have completed it to check for mistakes. It's easier to take out a few knots than a few rows of knots.

• Switching from DHHs to VDHHs and vice versa - When you get to Row 6, Cd # 5, the pattern calls for you to switch from a VDHH to a DHH I'he RC. which served as the Knotting Cord for Cd ff 4 becomes the Anchor Cord for the DHHs of Cds #5 & 6. It then reverts back to being the KC for the following VDHH on Cd U7 (see Figure 7).
