lobster stitch
I am looking for instructions for an aran knitting stitch. It is called the lobster stitch and I have also seen the lobster claw stitch. Not sure if they are the same stitch or not.


THANKS
Lynn

Thanks Ingrid - I had already found that... the only issue is that it is crochet and I need to do this stitch within a knit pattern. It is an aran knit sweater.

I have just spent the last hour and a half searching the net for this stitch. I found a site selling a sweater with the pattern right down the middle, but for the life of me I cannot find out how to do it! I would love to figure out how to do that stitch! I've tried every stitch library and directory I know of, and nothing..... odd.

knitclickchick - thanks for trying... I know, I have been searching for days... I bought an expensive pattern from clanarans before - that did not include that stitch, but maybe if I email them, they will tell me that one stitch. If I find it, I will let you know.

"The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches" p143 has a cable pattern called the 'seed cable' that looks exactly like the clanaran lobster claw. It's developed over 16 rows. Is this what you are looking for?

FOUND IT!
I posted this question on Ask Yahoo... and someone gave this link. There is no picture, but they are calling it the lobster stitch: (hope this is it!) Scroll down the page just a bit.
