As per promised, the stitch of the month. This month the stitch is tweed stitch. This is a bit of an odd one to make up but the end effect looks pretty cool. The book I found it in said that it should be used for homewares but I think that it’s really too cool for that. The stitch is a bit like a weave which means that it’s very rigid. I’d reccomend to go up one, possibly even two needles sizes. For example if the wool usualy uses size 5mm knitting needles knit this stitch in size 6mm or 6.5mm knitting needles.
You knit the first stitch as normal.
These two rows make up the pattern. The stitch knits up so that the piece is wider then the length when the the number of rows and the amount of stitches equal.
This is 21stitches by 21 rows
Enjoy the stitch if you have any questions you can leave I comment. Hope you find this useful.
