27 april, 2007

Found this stitch pattern while browsing the Vogue Knitting Stitchionary.  Increase, decrease pairings produce the directional texture of this swatch.  What if the increases were yarn-overs?  Tomorrow's swatch?

Yarn: Tahki's Cotton Classic
Needles: US 6
Stitch: Palm Leaves; multiple of 6 sts + 1

Row 1 (WS): purl
Row 2 (RS): *k2tog, k2, inc 1, k2*, repeat between *s to last stitch, k1
Row 3 (WS): purl
Row 4 (RS): k1, *k2, inc 1, k2, k2tog*, repeat between *s to end

Ooooo! I like it. Especially in green, I think, since it looks a bit horticultural. I'm saving a link to this one.

What if the incr/decr's came more/less frequently?

I like this one a lot. What did you do for the inc 1? I'm really terrible at standard m1, picking up the bar and knitting through it so it's twisted, but I would try it again...
