This interesting stitch looks a lot like crocheted mesh, but in fact it is created by a simple knit stitch. Easy and fun, this stitch will work great on a light sweater, scarf or shawl.
MATERIALS USED TO MAKE THE SWATCH
Yarn – Knitca Lovely 100% bamboo in Crimson colour
Needles – 5 mm (US8)
Cast on any number of stitches. Add 2 selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.
Row 1: [k1, place resulting stitch back on the left needle and knit it again], repeat brackets to end
Repeat row 1 as necessary for completing your project.
All abbreviations are explained in the Key to Chart.
You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.
Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart), and stitches in wrong side rows from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier, the number of each row is shown at the beginning of the row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side).
