New Knit Stitch a Week: Diamond seed
Teaching myself one new knit stitch a week, from the Complete Guide to Needlework book, c. 1979. This stitch was a fairly straightforward, easy knit. The first time through I had to make a point of remembering how to repeat the pattern. Very cute.
Once again, that lime green Baby Llama doesn't show up the seed texture as well. Still nice.
Using size 6 needles I cast on -
left: 24 stitches Elsebeth Lavold Baby Llama in Lime Juice
right: 16 stitches Wool of the Andes in Thyme
Multiple of 8 stitches.
Row 1: *P1, K7*
Row 2 and 8: *K1, P5, K1, P1*
Row 3 and 7: *K2, P1, K3, P1, K1*
Row 4 and 6: *P2, K1, P1, K1, P3*
Row 5: *K4, P1, K3*
