The Herringbone Twill Stitch

Description

The Herringbone Twill Stitch uses Slip Stitches to create a side-to-side zigzag pattern than produces a very firm fabric.

The stitch gives a very distinct and very firm pattern, particularly useful for projects (or areas of projects) that you do not want a lot of stretch or give.

The effect is created by slipping stitches knitwise in a series of progressively moving four stitch repeats, offset with a couple of knit (or purl) stitches to create the overall effect.

The Minaret Stitch

Description

The Minaret Stitch produces a slender Cable that resembles the domed structure of a mosque's minaret.

The Minaret Stitch is edging between an intermediate and advanced stitch, as it combines cables, slip stitches and decreases together to generate the arching domal structure. If any of the techniques listed below are new to you, I would hardly recommend following the video instructions before you start on the pattern proper.

Time to crack on to the instructions...
