Stitch of the Week:Mock Turkish Stitch

September 16th, 2013

Hey Knitters,

 

Here is a very easy and simple stitch for all beginners or advance knitters. The mock Turkish stitch creates a beautiful lace texture that will give any garment that special look. Try knitting a scarf or a blanket with this stitch and see the bold stitch pattern for yourself.

Cast on multiple stitches of 2, plus 2 extra stitches for the other edges. Work a 4 x 4 swatch gauge to practice before knitting your garment.

Row 1: (Right Side): K1 *Slip 1-K1-PSSO, YO*, end with K1

Row 2: K1 *P2tog, YO*, end with K1

Repeat rows 1 and 2 for stitch pattern.
