TUESDAY- Is TRY a NEW STITCH Day
Tuesday's I like to present a stitch for everyone, either a knit or crochet stitch (mostly knit though) to hopefully introduce something you haven't tried yet. The task is to knit up a sample of this featured stitch and then let us know what you think about it.
Today's featured stitch is called FEATHER FAGGOTING
Here is a picture of the swatch I knitted up this morning
I did 4 rows of Knit for a border and 4 knit stitches of border on each end. I then did 4 repeats of the pattern and then 4 rows of knit across twice. This was my result. Oh and I started with 24 stitches. (multiple of 4 (16) + 8 for border)
Now here is the pattern directions
*Note I added the K4 at the beginning and the end for the border, this is not required though)
Works on multiples of four stitches.
Row 1: K4 *Knit 1, Yarn Over, Purl 2tog, Knit 1. Repeat from * across to last 4, K4
Repeat this row for pattern. Block to desired openness.Post in the comments section what you think of this stitch. Have you tried this before? What did you make with it? Did you like it, hate it? Any comment today will get you another entry in this weeks contest, so jump right in, OK?
I will tell you I personally do NOT like the name of this pattern... honestly can't they come up with a more user friendly name? Geez.
I'll leave you today with a picture of some wild flowers my husband brought me last night. He found them while walking in the park. They were in his pocket for awhile, but they held up OK. I think he called them Black Eyed Susans... again... another not so user friendly... did they get named this because someone gave Susan a black eye and then gave her flowers to apologize? LOL
