Inspiration: While working at my LYS today, I spent some time browsing through Vogue Knitting Stitchionary and found this "Woven Herringbone" stitch pattern.  This simple patttern makes a lovely fabric.  How would you use it?
Yarn: Unknown, but feels like Karabella's Aurora 8.
Needles: US 8
Gauge: 22 stitches = 3.75 inches
Stitch: Woven Herringbone; multiple of 3 + 1

Row 1 (RS): k1, *yo, sl1, k2, psso*, repeat between ** to end
Row 2 (WS): p1, *yo, sl1, p2, psso* repeat between ** to end

Currious about the psso?  It stands for pass the slipped stitch over.  You'll be passing it over the 2 knit or the 2 purl stitches.

Should Row 2 have a yo in it somewhere, too? As written, it's a decreasing row.

I love the colour of that yarn, it's beautiful!

Is the fabric too stiff for a scarf? I have a few balls of Aurora 8 just waiting to be a scarf.

Very pretty -- I think that would make a nice stitch for a men's sweater.

Opps, I did forget a yo in Row 2 -- it's been corrected. Thanks Karen!

Love it. I want to make a neckwarmer for my hairdresser in Rio de la Plata in a similar pattern. I am, however, terrible at converting patterns into the round!

I love this fabric--it looks like it wants to be a handbag (lined, of course). Gorgeous swatch!

Hi Nona! I have been meaning to email you this photo of a scarf I'm making with this stitch pattern! I originally wanted to wait until I finished it, but then my impatience got the best of me....


I love how it turned out with the variegated yarn. Almost looks like crochet. Or like it was woven. (Definitely not knit, which is cool sometimes.)

Thanks again for these swatches! They are soooooo helpful and inspiring!
