How to knit the Seersucker stitch
CO multiples of 4 +1 + 2 edge stitches; i.e.: 4*4 = 16+1 = 17+2 = 19 stitches.
1º and 5º Rows (RS): K1 (edge), *K1, P1, K1, P1*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1, K1 (edge).
2º and every even row (WS): Work each stitch in the manner that it presents.
3º Row: K1 (edge), *P1, K3*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1, K1 (edge).
7º Row: K1 (edge), *K2, P1, K1*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1, K1 (edge).
8º Row: as 2º row.
Repeat these 8 rows until the desired length is reached. BO in pattern after an 8th row.
