From Sally — The Damask Pattern

Filed under: Susan's Kauni Cardigan — surly @ 8:29 pm

I know many readers who like how the Kauni yarn knits up in the Damask pattern are wondering if we have it to give or whether we know where it can be purchased. Sadly, we cannot provide it because of copyright infringement. It’s a Dale pattern and was published in 2001 as a leaflet. It was part of Dale’s “Home” collection and was intended to be knitted as a pillow (at least that’s the case based on the copy I have). I believe that the same pattern and chart may have been used in a sweater, but that’s a vague recollection. I found a link to a sweater with the same name, but I can’t tell if it’s the same pattern or not from the photograph.

I know that there are other, similar patterns out there. It may also be possible to chart it or adapt it yourself by looking at it, but we can’t provide a copy of the chart. Again, I am sorry for that.

On the other hand, a slightly “used” copy of the pattern might be a nice prize for our next bloggiversary.


  1. The sweater does look to be the same pattern; the pillow pattern is $4.50 at Allegro yarns, link here.
    And man oh man, is it beautiful what you gals are doing with that yarn! It makes me look at stranded patterns in a completely different way.

  2. I was just coming here to provide the same link as Loribird – I love the Damask Kauni! I’m looking forward to seeing more of yours.

  3. Sally, you would probably get a Clapotis done in a day or two! I’m going for one in color next. Heaven help me, I may be addicted!

  4. Hello everyone! I just finished charting my copy of the damask pattern using the pictures of the beautiful Kauni sweater that is underway. With a pencil and a piece of graph paper, you will find this quite easy to do. You can even get the spacing of the flowers in place with some attention to detail! Happy graphing!!
