Garter Eyelet Stitch Pattern Alteration??
I have used the Garter Eyelet stitch in scarfs, for which the pattern is:

Rows 1 thru 4: k
Row 5: *k2tog, yo* - rep from *, end k1
Row 6: k

This produces eyelets directly above one another across the rows:

O--O--O

O--O--O

In my present scarf, I would like the eyelets to be staggered:

--O--O--O

O--O--O

How would I alter the pattern stitch to get this result?

Okay first ya gotta stop deleting stuff while I am reading it so it doesn't disappear when I go to reply! *shakes fist*


I would think (and this is just thinkin') that if you do a five stitch border you would get that result. Basically knit 2 at the beginning of the row and three at the end with your pattern in between.


Maybe?

I have done it with baby blankets and I think they were staggered.

Sorry about the delete; I realized that I had posted it in the wrong forum.

Your suggestion seems like it should work. That would yield an offset one stitch wide, yes?

Thank you.

lol that's all right, it was just that it was the second time you did that to me in the last couple of days. I knew why you did it after I realized what forum i was looking at!


Yeah i think that is how it would come out.

If done on every row, would that produce the offset I'm looking for?

Yes, because you're moving the YO over one stitch. Try it out on some scrap yarn first; CO about 15 stitches or so and see how it works out.
