High impact texture stitch with origins in Japanese knitting. Demonstration shows the technique with 3 stitches, but the process is the same for 4. For a Wrap 4, simply slip 4 stitches to the cable needle and work the stitches as seen in the video. Any number of stitches can be worked into a wrap.
A delightful stitch used in the popular Indian Cross and Double Cross patterns. Used in my Wandering Moon shawl pattern.
This tidy little 3-stitch bobble is found in many Japanese patterns. It uses the Central Double Decrease at its conclusion for a neat appearance. Try it and compare to other bobbles – this may become your new favorite!
This lovely lace pattern comes to us from the famous Hunter family who pioneered Shetland lace. Unfortunately, they are no relation to me but I do feel a kinship as I knit this fun and easy design.
Elongated stitches are used to create interesting textures and gauges within a project. An elongated stitch is considerably larger than its neighboring stitches making it an excellent choice for spots of open work or color manipulation. The elongated stitch is most commonly formed with a method that utilizes multiple wraps. Check out how easy it is to use!
A delightful two-color stitch pattern that resembles crochet. The pattern is similar to the daisy stitch and makes use of the Make One Purl stitch. With a four row repeat it is easy to memorize and fun to knit!
This technique allows yarn to be chain plied into a triple strand without dividing the skein. Alternate triple and single plies for interesting effects without ever cutting the yarn. Warning – this is very addicting!
