This week’s stitch pattern is another favorite of mine. This is Tweed from the Big Book of Knitting Stitch Patterns.
This is a very simple stitch pattern with big results. It repeats every four rows using one color in the first 2 rows and a second color in the next 2 rows. For this swatch, I cast on 20 stitches on U.S. Size 7 needles using worsted weight cotton yarn. The fabric is quite dense.
Later, I used it to create a carrying sleeve for my tablet. I included more details in my post of August 14, 2013.
I plan on using this stitch pattern again in a tote bag, place mat, pillow cover, and possible a scarf. I think this would knit up beautifully using a solid and a self striping, variegated, or tonal yarn.
How would you use this stitch? What projects would you like to see with this stitch pattern?
