Today, you’ll learn to knit the one-row repeat stitch, great for scarves and infinite cowls.
It’s a lovely pattern; it will work for Winter/Summer garments, and it has some advantages to it:
First of all, it’s easy to do: There are 4 steps that be repeated time and time again because it’s a one-row pattern.
Secondly, it’s reversible and identical on both sides, this is why it’s great for scarves.
Furthermore, it doesn’t curl.
Therefore, there is no need to think of edges, but it’s also true that even a simple Garter stitch edge will make it shine… Variety and contrast are the spice of life!
Finally, you won’t have to purl 😉
I’m mentioning it, because I know that many knitters don’t love to purl, so that could be a motivation!
Ok then, grab your yarn + needles, and let’s get busy.
CO: Cast on
sl1pw: Slip one stitch purlwise
k2tog: Knit two stitches together
yo: Yarn over
BO: Bind off
One-row repeat knit stitch pattern
CO multiples of 4 + 2 (edge st); i.e.: 4 * 4 = 16 + 2 = 18 st
1º and only row: K1, *K1, sl1pw, k2tog, yo*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1.
This row creates the pattern and must be repeated until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO knitwise.
This is the other side of the work:
