As a budding designer, I find that often my patterns come from playing with stitches on the needles and “unventing” a stitch pattern.
I’m working on a super-secret project, but in doing so, I came across a cool pattern that would really work for the mindless knitting we all need in our lives. It’s a simple, one row stitch pattern with lace, ribbing, and a stable edge, so it’s perfect for a scarf or shawl project.
It looks like this:
Row 1: k3 (p1, p2tog, yo, k2,), k3
Which means if you cast on a multiple of 5 plus 6 stitches, you can just keep knitting this pattern ’til you run out of yarn, and you’ll have a scarf or shawl.
Enjoy, and please let me know if you try this out!
