Knot Stitch

Add a beautiful textured appearance to your knitting with this simple stitch. P2tog leaving the stitches on the left hand needle. Now, work a k2tog into the same two stitches and remove from the left hand needle.
The knot stitch is worked over an even number of stitches. Although there are two decreases, the stitch count remains constant because each pair of stitches is worked twice.

    Thank you Michelle for simplifying the printed out directions by only adding the new abbreviations. It will make it easier to keep track of my pages. And thank you for beginning the season with a good warm up project.

    I’m glad you like the shortened printable copies. The posting is full of helpful information, but the downloadable/printable version is just the pattern. I’m trying to strike a balance between detailed instruction and paper conservation!

    Michelle, the videos are wonderful. I have learned so much from them. They are well done which makes learning the new technique a breeze. Can’t wait to start part 2.

    Having an absolute wonderful time with the “mystery” shawlette creating it and not knowing what it will look like until the sections are completed! Your precise reassuring directions and amazing instructional videos are excellent. THANK YOU!! So very glad that I am doing these projects!! Happy knitting to everyone!

    The Knot Stitch was used in the cowl pattern featured in my newest Knit Along, Intertwisted.
