Can you identify this stitch?


Hello!

I'm making a shrug which requires a mock rib stitch for the body. The pattern for the mock rib is given as: (RS) K1P1 across. WS) P1, SL1YF across.

My "interpretaton" of the SL1YF and the (WS) row is as follows: I purl the first stitch - slip the next stitch as if to purl - then purl the next stitch.

First of...can anyone explain the need to say YF (yarn forward) since it's already forward due to the first purl stitch? Perhaps I'm thinking too logically!

That's how I've been knitting my mock rib and it certainly doesn't resemble this lovely stitch pattern. Can anyone tell me what I'm looking at (with envy) and better yet, explain how to do it?

As always, many thanks.

It reminds me of this dishcloth pattern I came across recently.

It may be called Linen Stitch too. The wyif is just a reminder to keep the yarn there, instead of moving it to the back for the slip st.

It reads the same as this one but oddly does look different.

I wonder if your picture is of the reverse side or they have used the back of st pattern as front.

This broken rib looks similar both sides to the above, but has no slip sts.

Are you knitting on even or odd number of sts? Should be an odd number... So row 1 would be k1, p1, ending with a k1 and row 2 would be P1, sl 1 wyif, repeat, ending with p1.

suzeeq, I saw that too. No, my stitches were even not odd so that may have made a difference. I think the Pillar Stitch that cam posted may do the trick. I'll try it both ways. Thanks a bunch.

Hi Cam - this looks a LOT like the stitch I'm trying to make. It's hard for me to read the print. Could you please give me instructions for the Pillar Stitch? Many thanks.

Cam, by the way what's Harmony and which magazine or book do you have? Is it still available? I would love to get a copy. Thanks again!

Deborah, it's a Harmony stitch guide, an encylopedia of stitch patterns.

It may be that the original rows work over even stitches, and what I posted work over odd stitches and may be the same, I'm not sure. Are you doing the Circular shrug? A lot of people got driven batty by the mock rib and did it either in stockinette or a lacy rib.
