Eccentric Stitch


This is the second fabric in my stitch series. This stitch is call the eccentric stitch.

Eccentric stitch is a little more advanced than the garter stitch. The stitches used are:
  • knit
  • purl
  • yo
  • p2tog
  • p2tog tbl
  • sl, k, psso
The fabric this stitch creates can be used in several objects. It can create a beautiful shawl, stole or afghan fabric or even a rug. Garmets can also be made with this fabric if a somewhat lacy look is desired.

Method:

Multiple of 10 + 2 stitches
  1. K1 * yo, k8, k2tog repeat from * end k1
  2. P1 * p2tog, p7, yo, p1 repeat from * end yo, p2
  3. K3 * yo, k6, k2tog, k2 repeat from * end k2tog, k1
  4. P1 * p2tog, p5, yo, p3 repeat from * end yo, p4
