Found the most beautiful stitch here: http://freeknitstitches.com/pattern.php?num=271&menu=7
Pattern Details: 12 st wide, 24 st high
I = knit
– = purl
o = yarn over (purl one in next wrong side row)
/ = k2tog (knit 2 together)
Love the stitches on the freeknitstitches website, but really hate the lack of instruction.
To work the chart above with flat knitting, read from bottom right to bottom left. At the end of the row, start again at the far right. Then turn your work and purl row 2 (and all the even rows).
To work the chart above with circular knitting, read from the bottom right to the bottom left. At he end of the row, start again at the far right. No need to turn your work, all even rows are done in knit stitch.
I’m working that pattern in a shawl, I’ll update the post once my shawl looks pretty. :)
I’m knitting in Patons Lace yarn (so pretty and still, so cheap, only $5.64 for one skein at Joann Fabrics (use the additional 40% off a single item coupon on it for even more savings!), which makes a wrist to wrist shawl). Note the yarn has mohair which is a bit scratchy and sneezy. YMMV.
(No, I don’t work for Patons or Joann Fabrics, I’m just on a budget. Sheesh.)
MAJOR COOLNESS: You know why you should learn Norwegian purling? It’s for projects LIKE THIS!! :)
Written out pattern:
Even rows: knit all (for working in the round)
Even rows: purl all (for working back and forth)
