|Sample knit with Caron Simply Soft on US Size 6 needles|
This is similar to the Herringbone Stitch video I did in 2011. This makes a nice thick, dense fabric. Practice makes perfect with this stitch. It isn't hard, but may take a few tries to get comfortable with.
All slipped stitches are slipped purlwise
Yarn is to be held in the back of the work when slipping (wyib)
Worked on an odd number of stitches
Row 1: (WS) *P2tog, leaving sts on left needle. Purl first stitch again, then drop both stitches from left needle* end P1
Row 2: *Slip next stitch wyib, K1. With left needle, lift the slipped stitch as if to pass the slipped stitch over, but knit it before dropping it from the needle* end K1
You can find a great scarf from Purl Bee using this stitch. Click HERE.
Here is the video. Happy Knitting!
