Eye of Partridge Stitch

Sample knit with DK weight yarn on US 7 needles
Cast on a multiple of 2

Row 1: k1, sl 1 pwise
Rows 2 and 4: purl
Row 3: sl 1 pwise, k1

Repeat these four rows for pattern.

This fabric does not lay flat and has sloppy edges; depending on how you use the stitch, you may want to add a border to neaten things up.

Happy knitting!

Reversible Grand Eyelets

Sample knit with worsted weight yarn on US Size 8 needles


Cast on a multiple of 4+4

Row 1: p2 *yo, p4tog; rep from *, end p2
Row 2: k2 *k1, (k1, p1, k1) into yo; rep from *, k2
Row 3: knit

Repeat these 3 rows for the pattern.

The edges are not neat, depending on how you plan to use the stitch you may want to add a border to neaten things up.

If you are beginning the pattern right from the cast on row, cast on loosely or work a row of plain knitting (loosely) so that the p4tog in Row 1 is easier to work.  Work Row 3 loosely also to make Row 1 easier.
