Hello, sweet friends! It feels like it’s been forever since I last posted. Life has gotten so busy all of a sudden, and I have to prioritize. I’ve been working on a special knitting project for a friend of mine, and haven’t had a lot of time to do much else. However, I am not complaining. This project has been a new experience for me, and besides, sometimes it’s nice to slow down and work on one project as opposed to the TEN I’m usually trying to do all at once!
So, I don’t have much to offer in this post, but I do have some pictures of what I’ve been up to lately, and also a fun tutorial for a cute chevron stitch that you’ve got to try! Check it out:
***You will need to know how to Knit and Purl***
***Cast on in multiples of 6, plus 5***
***Start on the “wrong” side of your work, or what I would call the “knit” side for this project***
- Row 1: K5, *P1, K5; Rep from * to end of row
- Row 2: K1, *P3, K3; Rep from * to last 4 sts, P3, K1
- Row 3: P2, *K1, P2; Rep from * to end of row
- Row 4: P1, *K3, P3; Rep from * to last 4 sts, K3, P1
- Row 5: K2, *P1, K5; Rep from * to last 3 sts, P1, K2
- Row 6: Purl all stitches
Repeat until you have reached your desired length
In the past month I have:
And so much more!
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a post about the up and coming trend: arm knitting, more info about the special piece I’ve been working on for my friend, and I’ll also show you a really fun project I’m excited about for the quickly approaching summer season!
