Recent postings have renewed my interest in condo knitting. Are there patterns other than those in garter stitch? I've searched the net and haven't found any. If anyone knows it'd be KP'ers.

Hadn't thought about it before, but you are correct, most patterns are done in all knit, or garter stitch. Search designer Sally Melville. She doesn't call it 'condo' knitting, but that is the technique she uses. Check her book 'The knit stitch', there are some nice patterns in there. I made the one she calls her 'favorite summer sweater'.

To answer the other question, 'what is condo knitting? It is a simple technique of using one small needle, and one much larger needle to create an airy fabric. If you use the search on this site, you can review the other posts on this subject, there are many.
