Travelling Vine Stitch

The Travelling Vine Stitch

Description

The Travelling Vine Stitch uses Eyelet & Lace techniques to create a fabric of staggered vine leaves climbing the fabric.

Simply an excellent choice for light-weight cardigans or scarves, particularly when paired with a less elastic yarn like cotton to create a chic draping effect.

This stitch gets fairly involved with several knit two/purl two together and knitting/purling through the back loop decrease techniques. If you are a less experienced knitter, then make sure you acquaint yourself with all the techniques before you get going.

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