Stitches Discovered

As mentioned, (see blog post Color, Pattern and Texture, dated  6/8/2012) pushing the limits of knit and purl stitches keep me awake at night.  Waking-up at 5:00 in the morning with an idea energizes my creative soul.  Last week, I discovered the Knitted Daisy Stitch/Star Stitch Pattern.

Stitches Discovered #2Stitches Discovered #4Colorwork, pattern and texture achieved using slip stitches offers a “freeform” of expression without the tangled mess of Fair Isle and Intarsia (my own personal experience).  I played around with different color combinations, manipulating swatches like building blocks in order to construct an “aesthetic knitted architecture.”

Knitted Daisy Stitch/Star Stitch Pattern:

Cast on 13 stitches (12 + 1) .  Row 1: (RS facing) Knit all stitches.  Row 2: K1, *P3 tog leave stitches on the needle, yo, P the same 3 tog again and drop them, K1; rep from * to end of row. Row 3: Knit.  Row 4: K1, P1, K1, *P3 tog leave stitches on needle, yo, P the same 3 tog again and drop them, K1; rep from *, ending last repeat with P1, K1.  These 4 rows form the pattern.  Repeat these 4 rows for desired length.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.

  2. Thanks for sharing this pattern. My Mum used to knit it years ago with double chunky yarn for pot holders. Your colour versions are lovely 🙂 Avis x
