Hey everyone, spring is here I’m just looking forward to seeing some color! Spring is such a wonderful time for knitting light projects, and a calm way of looking forward to summer.
One of the stitches that I’m loving at the moment is the Daisy Stitch. I’m sure it has many names but this is what I know it as.
While working this stitch , it produces a thick fabric, so, of course if you want something loser, try working with a larger needle and see what we get.
The Daisy Stitch looks so beautiful, and regardless of you work it as a solid color or alternating colors, it will be a beautiful stitch.
Since this is a pattern that shows up after completing the purl side, it can be a little difficult to get the needle through all three of the stitches, but it’s not impossible! Once you start to do it, it’s easy to remember to relax!
Pin it now, save for later!
Daisy Stitch Pattern:
- In order to start this stitch, you have to cast on a multiple of 4 + 3 stitches
- Row 1: Knit
- Row 2: K1, *P3tog (do not remove stitches from the needle) Yo, P3tog the same 3 stitches. K1.
- Row 3: knit
- Row 4:K3, *P3tog (do not remove stitches from the needle) Yo, P3tog the same 3 stitches. K1.
- Repeat rows 1-4 until you reach your desired length.
A great way to practice this stitch is to make a dishcloth or washcloth. Since it does make a firm fabric it would be perfect for scrubbing.
