Hi everyone! I will be taking a little break from the weekly videos. I've been making a video nearly every week since 2011 - that's a lot of videos, and a lot of time taken to make those videos. I'd like to take that time instead to spend with my family. I'll let you know when the videos will resume.
Until then, Happy Knitting!

For my sample, I used a fingering/sock weight yarn on US size 7 needles
Multiple of 6 + 2
Row 1 (WS): k2 *p4, k2
Row 2: p2 *k2tog, yo twice, ssk, p2
Row 3: k2 *p1, p first yo, p-tbl of second yo, p1, k2
Row 4: p2 *yo, ssk, k2tog, yo, p2
Repeat these four rows for the pattern. Both the front and back of this stitch is attractive, making it good for scarves or other items where the back will be seen. You may also want to consider adding an extra stitch or two or a border to neaten up the edges, depending on how you use the stitch.

|Sample knit with worsted weight silk on US 8 needles|
Multiple of 2 + 1
Row 1: (RS) *k2tog, yo, repeat from * and knit last stitch
Rows 2 and 4: purl
Row 3: k1 *yo, sl 1, k1, psso (stitches are slipped knitwise)
Depending on how you use the stitch, you may want to add at least one extra stitch on each side for a neater edge.
