the Lark in the Morning

And now we see why I showed you how to do the lark’s head stitch in my last post! Here’s a free stitch pattern for you, just in time for Valentine’s Day. This combination of yarnovers came up as part of a draft secret code stitch pattern I’m putting together. It’s not meant as secret code by itself though. I just lifted it out of a larger stitch pattern because I liked the little hearts. Secret: I don’t usually like hearts.

The Lark in the Morning is the title of a traditional, slightly bawdy, song.

Lark’s head: twist the first loop of a double yarn over before you knit or purl it; twist the other loop in the opposite direction.

1: *k8, k3tog, yo x 2, k2, yo2, sssk,* k8.
2: *p9, lark’s head, p2, lark’s head, p,* p8.
3: *k2, k2tog, yo x 2, ssk, k10,* k2, k2tog, yo x 2, ssk, k2.
4: *p3, lark’s head, p11,* p3, lark’s head, p3.
5: *k3tog, yo x 2, k2, yo x 2, sssk, k8,* k3tog, yo x 2, k2, yo x 2, sssk.
6: *p, lark’s head, p2, lark’s head, p9,* p, lark’s head, p2, lark’s head, p.
7: *k10, k2tog, yo x 2, ssk, k2,* k8.
8: *p11, lark’s head, p3,* p8.

I’m not likely to design anything with this stitch pattern; feel free to use it for whatever you like, commercial or not. (Credit would be appreciated but is not required.)
