My bag stitch pattern

Thursday, June 21, 2007

So, for Justine, and not only, my bag stitch pattern.
Note: very easy

This stitch pattern requires multiple of 5 stitches + 2 extra stitches (border stitches, i.e. one st for each side). I won't mention the border stitches in the pattern.

Row1 (RS): Knit till end of row
Rows 2-4 : Knit till end of row
Row 5: *[yo twice, K], repeat from * till end of row
Row 6: *[Slip 5 sts purlwise to RH needle, dropping same time the yo's from previous row; slip these 5 sts back to the LH needle and Ktbl, do not drop the stitch from LH needle, (yo, Ktbl) twice in the same stitch. Now pass(dropp) all the 5 sts to the RH needle.] Repeat from * till end of row. Now you should have the same no of sts on yr needle.

Repeat rows 1-6

For the swatch in the above picture, I casted on 32 sts (30 sts + 2 border sts). If you still have questions regarding this stitsch pattern, pls let me know.

Thanks for stopping by my blog & leaving a comment. What you were looking at is an aceo.For those not familiar with them, ACEO stands for artist cards, editions and originals. They are small works of art in any media, the only criteria being they measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".

I did this one as a challenge to use the color red.

Your bag stitch pattern is amazing!

Thanks again for your comments. I mostly taught myself to do everything. I was always very crafty even as a child. I always enjoyed drawing and making things.

I do not find you too curious at all--I enjoy "meeting" people and am happy to blog with you.
