At first sight I thought, “Oh, how fiddly and complicated it must be to make this huge stitch! But, this stitch pattern is just too incredibly easy. It is accomplished simply by using dropped stitches, then weaving, or ‘braiding’ them (in a manner of speaking) from bottom to top.
I am sure this look can easily be replicated in crochet as well using chain stitches. And, I swear I saw a video tutorial on this as well…just can’t seem to find it now! (dadgummit)
Here’s a video to show just how easy this look is to accomplish this stitch by knitting:
Sooo, what I am thinking is…what a lovely blanket (afghan, if you are old-fashioned like me) this would make. Super warm and snugly. I would think that using over sized needles might give a very nice drape while not ending up too ‘bulky’. Oh! Bulky yarn!!!
Yet another ‘thing’ on my endless list of things-to-do!!! Have a great weekend, and ~ GO HAWKS!!! (Just had to throw that in!) ~GMa Ellen
