Stitch Series Garter on the Bias



Here is another instalment of my stitch series. This one is called garter stitch on the bias. This is the traditional method for making Shetland Island shawls.





Method


  • CO 3 sts
  • k1, yo, k1, yo, k1
  • k5
  • k1, yo, k3, yo, k1
  • k7
  • Continue in this pattern k1, yo, k(x amount of sts), yo, k1 then knit the next row
For decreasing do the following:
  • k1, s k psso, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
  • k across
  • continue until 5 sts remain
  • k1, s k2tog psso, k1
  • k
  • bind off
As you can see, this pattern is very simple. The fabric it creates is stretchy and movable.

I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
