Anemone Stitch

Sample knit with Malabrigo Worsted on US Size 8 needles

This stitch may present a bit of a challenge to a new knitter, and may even take a bit of practice if you aren't new to knitting.

Multiple of 4

Row 1: (WS) *Purl all stitches, wrapping yarn twice for each stitch*
Row 2: *Slip 4 sts to right needle, dropping extra wraps.  Slip the same 4 sts back to left needle, then (k4tog, p4tog) twice in same 4 sts*
Row 3: P2 *Purl, wrapping yarn twice for each stitch*  Repeat from * to last 2 sts, P2
Row 4: K2 *As Row 2* Repeat from * to last 2 sts, K2

Repeat these four rows for the pattern

Happy Knitting!
