In today’s tutorial, I’m sharing an adorable stitch, ideal for beginners.
This is a new two-row repeat knitting pattern, perfect for scarves, because it’s reversible (identical on both sides), and unisex.
Actually, it’s so easy, that you don’t even have to purl: The pattern requires knits and slip-stitches only! It looks pretty similar to the Double Slip-Stitch Rib pattern, but it’s even easier 😉
Furthermore, it stays flat, so it can be used for blankets, cowls, bags, table runners, place mats, cushions, and many other projects, the possibilities are endless!
Finally, in the video tutorial, you’ll see how it’s done in both English and Continental style… ooh la la.
Ok, let’s get started!
The odd rows form the right side of the work.
Always slip the stitches purl wise (pass the stitch onto the right-hand needle as if to purl).
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
sl1wyif: With yarn in front, slip one stitch
BO: Bind off
Two-row repeat knitting stitch pattern
CO multiples of 4 + 3; i.e.: 4 * 4 = 16 + 3 = 19 st.
1º row (RS): K3, *sl1wyif, K3*. Repeat from * to *, to end
2º row: K1, *sl1wyif, K3*. Repeat from * to *, to last 2 st, sl1wyif, K1
These two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO working each stitch as it presents, after a row 2 (RS).
This is the other side of the work:
And that’s all for today, my little Woolly!
