Diagonal Crepe Stitch

Sample knit with Patons Grace on US Size 5 needles

This stitch has pretty sloppy edges, you may want to add at least one extra stitch on each side as a selvage, or enough to make a border.

Multiple of 4 + 3

RT = Right Twist

There are two ways you can make the right twist: 

  • K2tog, leaving sts on the left needle.  Knit first st again, then drop both sts from left needle.
  • Skip first st on left needle, knit second st, then knit first st, and drop both from the left needle.

Row 1 (RS): P1, RT *P2, RT
Row 2: K1 *YO, P2tog, K2 - end last repeat with YO, P2tog
Row 3: K1 *P2, RT - end with P2
Row 4: K3 *YO, P2tog, K2

Repeat these four rows for the pattern.  Happy Knitting!
