Twilled Stripe Stitch

Sample knit with Malabrigo Worsted on Deborah Norville US #10 needles

This has to be one of my favorite new stitches!  I love the look of this one, and it is so easy too.

Multiple of 7 + 2

LT = Left Twist - skip next stitch on left needle, knit into the back loop of second stitch, leaving stitch on needle.  Then slip first stitch purlwise, and drop second stitch from left needle.

Row 1 and all WS Rows:  k2 *p5, k2
Row 2: p2 *LT, k3, p2
Row 4: p2 *k1, LT, k2, p2
Row 6: p2 *k2, LT, k1, p2
Row 8: p2 *k3, LT, p2

Repeat these 8 rows for the pattern.  Happy Knitting!

I see this as a beautiful scarf in any soft pastel yarn, or a nice "gifted dishcloth" done in white cotton yarn.
Thanks so much for the pattern

does this tend to curl, or will it lay flat? Thank you!
