The Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns by Sterling Publishing Co. has been in my personal library for quite a few years. This summer, I decided to browse through it to find some stitch patterns that I hadn’t tried before.
This is a multicolored stitch pattern called Tweed. It is a simple four row pattern that uses one color for rows 1 and 2 and a second color for rows 3 and 4.
As always, I turned to size 7 knitting needles and my Sugar ‘n Cream worsted weight cotton yarn in two of my favorite colors, Robin’s Egg blue and yellow.
The result is a bright colored fabric that is rather thick.
I think it would be perfect as placemats for my kitchen.
I plan to try this stitch pattern in a lighter weight yarn. I am designing a collection of doll clothes and perhaps this stitch will work well as part of a dress or skirt.
