Lorne Pattern - Fourth in the Vintage Stitch Series

Sample knit with Caron Simply Soft on US size 7 needles
This is the next stitch in the Vintage Series that I love.  This one comes from The Lady's Knitting Book, Second Series published in 1881 by E. M. C.   

The pattern calls for "plus 2" stitches - one to be knit on each edge.  If using this stitch alone in your pattern, I would add a few more to make a wider border, because the edges look a little sloppy to me.  If you are a tight knitter, try to loosen up a bit, or use a larger needle so the 'knit 3 together' will be a bit easier on you.

Cast on a multiple of 5 stitches plus 2

Row 1: K1, *K2, YO, K3tog, YO*, repeat from * to end, Knit last stitch
Row 2: K1, *P3, K2*, repeat from * to end, Knit last stitch
Row 3: K1, *P2, K3*, repeat from * to end, Knit last stitch

Repeat these three rows for pattern.

And here is the video.  Enjoy!
