Stitch of the Week:Twisted Stockinette Rib

September 10th, 2018

Hey Knitters,

Here is a different twist to a knit stitch and it is called the twisted stockinette rib. It has a beautiful diagonal twist that give the look of a twisted rope. It is also done in a simple knit and purl stitch that make the pattern easy to knit. Try it and see how you like it.

Cast on multiple of 3 stitches

Row 1 (RS): *k2tog, leaving sts on needle, k first st again, slip both from needle, k1; rep from *

Rows 2 and 4: purl

Row 3: *k1, k2tog, leaving sts on needle, k first st again, slip both from needle; rep from *

Repeat these four rows for the pattern. This stitch will curl, so you may want to add a garter/seed stitch border depending on what you are knitting.

 

Happy Knitting
