materials needed:

  • Medium, Worsted, Aran, Afghan Yarn (I used Elle Classic Wool Chunky) - 2 x 100g balls will be more than enough.

16 sts over 28 rows


For free pdf - scroll down.


skill level & More about the stitches used:

  • There is only one knitting technique used, namely k1b and it is explained below.
  • Suitable for beginner knitters.  If you've only started knitting, don't be discouraged, the video explains it all.
  • Pattern is knit over 2 rows.
  • The pattern stitch is knitted on the wrong side of the knitting project.
  • When you start knitting any piece (first row), your starting yarn will be on your left (if you are knitting European style).
  • As you progress with the piece, you will eventually cast off, and then the finishing yarn will be at the top right.
  • In this instance, you will knit your whole item, but the reverse side will be your pattern side - meaning the starting yarn will be at the bottom right and the finishing yarn, at the top left.
  • There is such a slight difference in the looks of the front and back, that it is basically a reversible pattern.
  • It is double-wrapped and can easily be turned into a scarf too (just add fringes or pom-poms).
  • The knitting project is in garter stitch with ribbed edges.

explaining k1b:


K1B is the abbreviation for:  knit one stitch below the stitch on the needle;

In other words, you will be knitting the stitch in the stitch from the previous row.

How do you do this?

Knit through the center of the stitch below the stitch on the needle and slip off both strands at the same time.

See the video demonstration.



ABBREVIATIONS

k        - knit

K1B   - knit in the stitch below

p        - purl

rep     - repeat

st        - stitch
