I think this is pretty and I’ve been playing with it. I also think the instructions are wrong. From the pattern:
Row 1 (RS): k1 yo 3 times; rep from
Row 2: [sl 1, drop 3 yo’s] 7 times, sl 7
elongated sts back to LH needle, [k7tog
tbl do not drop from LN needle, yo k tbl 3
times], then let drop from LH needle; to
Row 3: k, picking up strands between sets
of 7sts and k tog with first st in each set.
Row 4 – 8: k all rows.
As written, at the beginning of row 2 I would be slipping a yo. That wasn’t working out for me so I worked row 1 as *yo 3x, k1 and that works because I ended with a knit stitch to slip at the beginning of row 2 and dropped yo’s at the end of the row. Anyhow, is it me or the pattern? I haven’t yet got a name for it that will work when I Google (just get loop stitches that aren’t like this) and have been looking at pictures at New Stitch a Day and Knitting Fool. I’m trying to think of other places to look. Does anyone know the name of it or have suggestions for finding it?
Better yet if someone just already knows the answer.
