Details
The Orenburg region of Russia shares a border with present-day Kazakhstan. During the Soviet era in the 1950s and 1960s, much of the steppe of Kazakhstan was developed as wheat fields to supply grain for the Soviet state, and as a result, many people relocated to work in the fields. Koloski (Ears-of-Wheat) symbols soon began to appear on posters, paintings, wallpaper, and even embroidered on blouses and dresses. Lace knitters of the region also took notice and adapted the Koloski pattern for use in their knitted shawls. By the 1970s, however, Koloski had fallen out of favor with many lace knitters: Olga A. Federova (1935-2008), then artistic director for the Orenburg Kombinat (Co-op), felt that the pattern did not meet the exacting symmetrical/geometric standards of the Kombinat.
I've always wanted to try this pattern, and fortunately, I have several lace pieces featuring it in my collection. Lacking written instructions, I knitted swatch after swatch to determine how the pattern was achieved. It turns out to be a combination of yarnovers, double yarnovers, and knit-two-togethers on a garter-stitch fabric. I do like this pattern, and I hope that you enjoy knitting Koloski as much as I did.
