Little Arrowhead Stitch

The Little Arrowhead Stitch

Description

The Little Arrowhead Stitch uses Eyelet & Lace techniques to create a texture of repeating arrowheads.

This stitch is an excellent choice for lightweight summer garments like shawls or shrugs, particularly when paired with a less elastic yarn like cotton to create a chic draping effect.

This is quite a short and straightforward pattern, but don't let that fool you into complacency, there are a couple of tricky advanced techniques in there, so make sure you fully understand them before you start.

Looking to get started, well lets move on to the instructions...

Instructions

Cast on any multiple of six stitches plus one for your project.

Begin the first row by knitting the first stitch. We will then enter a six stitch pattern repeat consisting of; yarnover, slip knitwise, slip knitwise and then knit the stitches together, knit one, knit two together, yarnover and then knit one. Keep repeating this pattern till the end of the row.

The second and fourth rows consist entirely of purl stitches. Nice and easy.

The third row starts by out by knitting two stitches, then entering a repeat. Start the repeat by yarning over, then slip two stitches as if to knit, knit one then pass both slip stitches over, yarnover and knit three. Keep repeating this across your row.

Continue repeating rows 1-4 until you have the desired size.
