In this tutorial, you’ll learn a pretty stitch: The Horizontal Slipped stitch. This pattern is quite delicate, elegant, yet easy to knit: a two-row repeat stitch that combines knits and purls while slipping a couple of stitches.
It’s a unisex and reversible stitch (both sides look beautiful, although they are not identical), ideal for knitting women’s and men’s cowls, scarves and sweaters.
Before recording the video tutorial I knitted several swatches using different yarn qualities and thicknesses…
CO: Cast on
sl1: Slip one stitch purlwise
wyif: With yarn in front (bring your yarn to the front of the work)
BO: Bind off
Horizontal slipped stitch
CO multiples of 4; i.e.: 4 * 4 = 16 stitches.
1º and every odd row: K1, *P2, K2*. Repeat from * to *, until there are 3 st left, P2, K1.
2º and every even row: K1, wyif, sl1, sl1, P2*. Repeat from * to *, until there are 3 st left, wyif, sl1, sl1, pass the yarn to the back of the work, K1.
These two rows form the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, and after a row 2, BO in pattern (work every stitch as it presents).
This is the other side of the work:
