Today’s post is short but sweet! I wanted to share with you this amazing new knitting stitch I learned.
It is on the more difficult side of stitch patterns, however, with some practice the result is totally worth it! I have an infinity scarf in mind using this stitch and I’m dreaming of a lovely silk yarn to do it in.
Once I have the pattern written I will be sharing it here with you! So be sure you’re

WHAT I USED:
- size 9 needles
- 1 skein yarn
I knew I was wanting to play around with this stitch more than anything when I grabbed this skein of yarn. It’s described as a “scratchy” yarn and not really one I would use to gift with. However, the colors are gorgeous!!! I’m looking for something equally as beautiful colorwise to make an infinity scarf with.
Some other project ideas which I believe would be gorgeous using this stitch would be…
- a chunky throw pillow
- a sweater
- infinity scarf
- blanket or throw made with a large chunky yarn
Really the possibilities are endless! I do recommend getting a practice skein of yarn to try this stitch out on first. Within the first hour of starting this pattern, I had frogged more times than I wanted too!
Give this one some time to master. It will be totally worth it in the end!
The textures are gorgeous and I love the movement created by each of the twisted ribs. It is really stunning and on the right project could be an even more beautiful!
THE STITCH PATTERN:
Cast on a Multiple of 7 + 2
***pattern note: LT refers to left twist – skip next stitch on left needle, knit into the back loop of the second stitch, leaving stitch on the needle. Then slip the first stitch purlwise, and drop the second stitch from left needle.
R1 and all WS Rows: k2 *p5, k2
R2 : p2 *LT, k3, p2
R4 : p2 *k1, LT, k2, p2
R6 : p2 *k2, LT, k1, p2
R8 : p2 *k3, LT, p2
Repeat these 8 rows for the pattern.
Now for those of you who are more visual learners, I have been toying around with the idea of creating a YHN youtube channel. I know for some reading out a description of something isn’t enough to understand what you’re needing to do.
I am actually like this in a lot of ways!
If you would like for me to start up a channel where you can go to get good quality tutorial videos as well as videos giving you step by step instructions on certain types of projects…
