What is this stitch?


Ok watching Knitty Gritty the other day they showed this stitch where you go into the knit stitch, then wrap twice around the needle pulling both loops through.. so on a row of 10 stitches you wind up with 20 stitches at the end, then the next row you knit and drop each extra loop making a LONG knit stitch.

I used this for a chenille scarf this weekend and it worked up beautifully.. chenille sometimes isn't quite as soft as it should be if it's knit or crocheted too tight but this worked great... but for the life of me I can't remember this stitch and I haven't been able to find it in my books.

Anyone have a clue?

Sounds like a drop stitch. www.knittingfool.com has a good directory of stitches where you can see if one of the drop stitch directions matches yours.

What a cool site.. thanks for the link!

But no, not a drop stitch. I'll have to take a picture and post it.. it makes a really LONG knit stitch so that sections of the scarf are literally just strings going from one row to the next.. It's hard to explain

Sounds like the "elongated stitch" (aka "drop stitch"). Amy has a video of it here, and it is also in the knittingonthe net.com stitch pattern directory.

Yup, the Knitty Gritty video even calls it a drop stitch.
Thing is, you can make drop stitches any length; the more wraps on the needle, the longer the "drop." In theory, you could knit one row, wind 100 wraps around the needle, drop them on the next knit row and end up with a piece that's a lot of strings held together top and bottom. (Which might actually make a neat curtain. Or a very strange skirt.)

I've actually done that in wall hangings. It really works!
