Chugga Chugga Charts

These charts can be used most successfully with double knitting but an adventurous knitter may adapt them into stranded knitting or intarsia or some combination of the two.

I used wool-ease with an Italian tubular cast-on and then double knit 7 plain rows the caboose three repeats of the passenger car, coal car and engine and 7 more plain rows. I used a sewn cast-off to match the cast-on. It measures appx. 5" x 72" with a gauge of 5 sts per inch on size 7 needles.

Enjoy these charts but please, only use them for personal projects or gifts.

Here's the finished object!
