I’ve been working on a new scarf pattern. It’s lacy and soft. It uses a lace pattern that is quick to learn and repeats throughout making it easy to follow. I’ve designed it in Malabrigo Arroyo. It uses the right twist stitch – one of my favourites. You saw it in Just a Little Twist and A Bigger Twist. Here’s a peek at the new pattern!
How do you do the right twist stitch, you ask? It’s easier than it sounds. You knit two stitches together (k2tog) but leave them on the left-hand needle. Don’t slide them off yet. Insert the right-hand needle between the two stitches just worked. Knit the first stitch again. Now you can slide the stitches off the left-hand needle. The number of stitches worked hasn’t changed. It’s not a decrease. You still have two stitches, but they are now twisted.
The finished scarf requires blocking to make the stitch pattern pop. This photo of the scarf – freshly blocked – really shows off the texture of the stitch pattern.
