What is This?

Someone needs to help me. With all of my knitting books in storage, I can't identify this stitch pattern, much less figure out its repeat. It must have something to do with dropped stitches, but in what combination I cannot decide.


Photographed at Rhinebeck, it's one of the patterns that I'm thinking of using for my Prism Scarf. Apparently, I'm not alone in liking this motif. Did you see the Logan River Wrap in the Winter Interweave preview? Oh, yeah, and there's another pattern in there too (thanks for all your kind comments about my print debut).

My design aside, I think that the latest IK is fantastic! I want to knit almost everything. It's been a long time since I've been able to say that about a knitting mag. Kudos to the IK peeps for a great issue!


Looks like it's the same as the free Interweave Summer 2005 drop stitch shrug pattern. I made it a couple of years ago. Link is: http://www.interweaveknits.com/freepatterns/pdf/Shrugs_instructions.pdf

Just scroll down. It's a pretty easy 12 row repeat.

Isn't Rhinebeck inspiring??

It looks similar to a scarf I'm currently making, but more so if you look at the one you're holding horizontally. Does that make sense? Anywho, here's the one I'm doing: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Mel2458/drop-stitch-scarf

I was going to direct you the IK cardigan, but it looks like you're already there -- I did a scarf with that pattern a few years ago - it's fun to do all the wraps! And it does look awesome...

Is easy pattern.

Basic recipe:
Knit a few rows in stockinette.

On RS row, K2, YO, [K4, YO], repeat [], end with K2.

3 more rows stockinette.

On RS row, knit across, dropping the stitch above the yarn over.

Changing the number of stitches between YO and the number of rows knit between YO rows and drop rows will change how the fabric looks.

I think that it's called seafoam stitch...

Congrats on your pattern. Sorry I can't help with your stitch pat.

It's the stitch pattern I used for one of my designs in Sensual Knits!!!
I worked it slightly differently than described above. I did k2p2 ribbing, and for every other k2 column, I would add a yo in the middle, then drop it 6 rows later. Then repeat so that the dropped sts are staggered. In your picture, it looks like there's a p1 instead of p2. By the way, it's lace like and opens up when you block it, and it doesn't curl!

Looks like a pattern from Fitted Knits by Stephanie Japel. Sleeveless top,done in a dark blue.
Beautiful pattern.

I can't believe I missed them the first time through - they're going to take the world by storm for sure now!

It looks like something Morehouse Farms might have on their site. They have some interesting scarves with that kind of look. Whatever it is, it's beautiful!

It kinds of look like the pattern I saved from DROPS Design free pattern called Scarf in Alpaca. http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=93&d_id=7&lang=us. But the instruction on the site isn't very clear. I have additional written instruction if you are interested, just let me know.
