Dutch Knitting StitchMay 10, 2017 / byPurl Bee / Categories : Feeds
Dutch Knitting Stitch is worked over a multiple of 3 plus 2 stitches. For example, our Terrace Wrap has a cast on of 119 stitches: 3 times 39 equals 117, plus 2 equals 119.
This stitch has a 6-row repeat. The three wrong-side rows are all the same: Purl. The three-right side rows are very similar, making the overall stitch pattern a cinch!
If worked in long swaths (i.e. a long scarf or generous wrap), this fabric may bias slightly with wear. That’s okay, it’s just as beautiful! If this stitch worked in smaller pieces and pieced together for a garment, the biasing should be counteracted by seaming and blocking.
Row 1 and all subsequent wrong side rows: Purl.
Row 2 (right side): K3, *yarn over (yo), k3, pass the first knit stitch over the other 2, repeat from * to last 2 stitches, k2.
Row 4: K5, *yo, k3, pass the first knit stitch over the other 2, repeat from * to last 3 stitches, k3.
Row 6: K4, *yo, k3, pass the first knit stitch over the other 2, repeat from * to last stitch, k1.
Repeat Rows 1-6.
