more about the stocking stitch ridge

The pattern is knit over 4 rows.

Stocking stitch is knit as follows:

Row 1 and all other uneven rows - Knit

Row 2 and all other even rows     - Purl

However, the pattern is not entirely based on the true stocking stitch.

Interestingly, in row 2 you will be decreasing your stitches and in row 3, you will be increasing the stitches again.

Also these 2 rows create the ridge and little whole in the pattern.





the pattern - stocking STITCH ridge

MULTIPLES OF 2

Cast on multiples of 2 stitches - my sample shown is worked over 30 stitches.

Stitches should not be counted after the 2nd row.

1st   Row (right side): Knit;

2nd  Row (wrong side):  P1 *K2tog; rep from * to last st, p1;

3rd  Row:  K1 *knit into front and back of next st; rep from * to last st, k1;

4th  Row:  Purl;

Repeat the pattern (these 4 rows) until your work is the desired length.
