Whoops! I’ve been so busy with some other work I’ve been doing that I didn’t schedule a post for this morning ahead of time. I’m actually pleased to be able to say that this is the first time in a long time that I haven’t had a Monday post ready beforehand. (Because of all those weeks I was prepared.)
This is an outtake from the justice/equality/mercy knit/purl pattern. It’s my favorite bit of the whole design. (It doesn’t mean anything by itself.)
I suspect from the simplicity of it that it’s probably a traditional stitch pattern.
Sorry I don’t have a swatch photo yet, but I like the way it makes an undulating design when worked in knit/purl. I expect it would be nice in cross stitch or other gridded techniques, too!
This stitch pattern has a repeat of 8 + 1 stitches and 3 + 1 rows
Row 1 (RS): k1, *(p3, k1) x 2 ; work from *.
Row 2 (WS): p1, *(p1, k2) x 2, p2 ; work from *.
Row 3: *k1, p2, k3, p2 ; work from *, k1.
Row 4: k1, *(p3, k1) x 2 ; work from *.
Row 5: *2, (p2, k1) x 2 ; work from *, k1.
Row 6: p1, *k2, p3, k2, p1 ; work from *.
Row 7: *(p1, k3) x 2 ; work from *, p1.
