St. John's Wort


Sample knit with US 9 needles and worsted weight yarn

Multiple of 6

Row 1 (rs): *sl 1 purlwise, k2, psso the 2 knit sts, k3

Row 2: *p4, yo, p1

Row 3: *k3, sl 1 purlwise, k2, psso the 2 knit sts

Row 4: *p1, yo, p4

Repeat these four rows for the pattern.

You may want to add a border, or work this stitch in between other stitch patterns; because of the rows ending/beginning with slipped stitches being passed over, the edges are not even or neat.  Another option is to work the uneven edges in as a design feature, to use as buttonholes perhaps.

Happy Knitting!

Hello, I like this stitch. I’m trying to devise a border for it in a scarf pattern, using your Crossed Cardigan Stitch for the border. But since the CCS is on 3+2 and the SJWS is knit across multiples of 6, I’m having a hard time finding a common denominator. Can you suggest a simpler border that has worked for you?
