View Full Version : Looking for a particular stitch

Hello everyone,

Years ago (like 40) when I learned to knit, one of my very frist projects was a mohair cardegan. I've long since lost the sweater, but I'm interested in recreating the stitch. I have several referrence books, Mon Tricot, Vogue, Barbara Walker, etc. But I have not seen this particular one in it. It was a 4 stitch repeat based entirely on knit (no purl stitches, even on the back side) I remember there were slipped stitches involved. About every 4th row you slipped one stitch over some other stitches forming a bump.

The overall effect was similar to blackberry stitch, but less thick through and more supple. If I still had the sweater I could recreate the stitch, but I'm working from memory here. Anybody have a clue what I'm talking about? OTOH, it could be of my own invention, since I was so new at knitting and I didn't have anyone helping me at all, just going by the book. :teehee:

I don't know which stitch you are might be referring to. Just too new I guess, but have you checked any stitch dictionaries? They have photos as well as directions and I'm sure you can find something similar.

The Knitter's Bible (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0715317997/sr=1-1/qid=1155578801/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-3671791-0480745?ie=UTF8&s=books)
Stitchionary (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1931543771/sr=1-1/qid=1155578629/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-3671791-0480745?ie=UTF8&s=books)

There are a bunch of knit stitch books if you search on amazon.

Yes, that is what the 3 books I mentioned are. Stitch dictionaries. Thanks, though

Could it be Turkish stitch?


Down at the bottom of the page...I'm guessing the purl stitches on either end are more for a selvedge effect rather than part of the pattern.

row 1 - knit across, purl last stitch
row 2 - slip 1, *yo, k2tog*, repeat from *, purl 1
repeat row 2 till the end, then one row 1, bind off.

My Gosh, I think that is IT! And it is even in about the same color as the one I made WAY way way back then.
THANKS :cheering:
