Spring Stitch

Sample knit with my Cushy Worsted on US 8 needles
Multiple of 4

To make springs:  wyib, insert right needle into next stitch as if to knit, wrap yarn around both needles ten times, then pull working yarn through all wraps and the stitch you are working into.  Slip from left needle; take working yarn to the right and pull out wraps. Then, gently pull on working yarn to coil the wraps up next to the needle.  Don't wrap too tightly - and remember, practice makes 'springs'!

Row 1: knit
Row 2: purl
Row 3: knit
Row 4: p1 *spring, k1, p2; rep from * to last 3 sts, make spring, k1, p1
Row 5: knit
Row 6: p3 *spring, k1, p2; rep from * to last 5 sts, make spring, k1, p3

Repeat from Row 3

Happy Knitting!
