Here’s a simple pattern with one tricky stitch that gives it unusual look and interesting texture.
MATERIALS USED TO MAKE THE SWATCH
Needles – 4 mm (US6)
Cast on a multiple of 5 stitches. Add 2 selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.
Row 1 (right side): [p2, k1, p2], repeat brackets to end
Row 2 (wrong side): [k2, p1, k2], repeat brackets to end
Row 3 (right side) : [p2, knit 1 stitch, then make 2 yarn overs (wrap the yarn twice around the needle), p2], repeat brackets to end
Row 4 (wrong side) : [k2, discard 2 yarn overs and purl 1 stitch, k2], repeat brackets to end
Row 5 (right side) : work as row 1
Row 6 (wrong side) : work as row 2.
Repeat rows 1-6 as necessary for completing your project.
Don’t forget to knit first and last stitch as selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge. Please, note, that chart and written instructions do not include selvage stitches.
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 row 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 for you the number of each row is shown at the beginning of row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in circle and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
