Mystery pattern?

Hello everybody. I am new to knitting just last year and I love it. I wanted to start a little earlier this year so that my friends can get their Christmas presents on time.

I came across this pattern online and although there’s a picture, there isn’t actually a pattern. I’m too much of a beginner to even fathom how this pattern was created.

If any of you experts could help me out with even the name of this pattern or how to go about it… it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance everybody!

This pattern stitch is made by increasing 5-7sts in one stitch and then decreasing at the edges of the increased sts using ssk and k2tog. The decreases slant toward each other on the following rows until you’re back to one stitch. This pattern is repeated across the rows and then offset on the next several rows.

To add to what salmonmac said about the decreases, the final row of them would be a double dec - sl 1, k2tog, psso.

Wow. Both of you are amazing.

Unfortunately, the terminology has gone over my head a little and I might have to take what you’ve said in this forum to a craft store to see if somebody can actually show me how to actually go about it with the picture in hand and your explanations in the other.

Try this on a sample. CO a few stitches, knit a couple rows. Then k2, and (k yo k yo k) in the next stitch, k1, (k o k o k) in the next stitch and so on, end with k2. Purl all sts on next row. Then k2 yo, * ssk or skp (for a left leaning dec) k1, k2tog, yo * and repeat to end. Purl back. Next row, k2, * (k o kok) in YO, sl1, k2tog, psso, repeat from * across.

Something like that. Once you get it down (look at the decrease videos) you can experiment with stitch placement to get it to look like that. The first row, might be something different than what I wrote; I can’t see the lower edge so not really sure how to start it.
