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.

The Trellis Stitch

Description

The Trellis Stitch is a member of the Cables & Twist Stitch family and produces a interlocking chain-mail affect.

The stitch gives a very angular honeycomb type texture and is an excellent choice for paneling on large projects.

The cross-over link effect is created by knitting what is in effect a rib style stitch, then slipping stitches onto a cable needle on the fifth and eleventh rows of the pattern repeat. By varying the timing of these cable rows you can make for a tighter interlocked pattern by repeating them more frequently, or alternatively generate a rib pattern with an occasional switch by increasing the cable row numbers.
