Here is another variation of the ladders stitch pattern. It works best as a border or as an all-over pattern for a transitional sweater or cardigan.
Yarn shown in this swatch: Knitca Lovely 100% superwash merino yarn, color 0611 Olive.
Needles: US size 6 (4 mm) .
Right side of the pattern:
Wrong side of the pattern:
Cast on a multiple of 7+1 stitches. Add 2 more selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.
Row 1 (right side): *knit 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together (right-slanting decrease), knit 1 stitch, 2 yarn overs, knit 1 stitch, SSK (left-slanting decrease)*, repeat from * to * as necessary, knit 1 last stitch.
Row 2 (wrong side): purl 1 stitch, *purl 3 stitches, knit 1 stitch, purl 3 stitches*, repeat from * to * as necessary.
Repeat rows 1-2 as necessary for completing your project.
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.
