Cross Stitch (similar to herringbone stitch)

The Cross stitch is a complicated, but very unique stitch that will interested you. This stitch is a 2  row repeat and is knitted in a multiple of 2 stitches + 1.

The cross stitch is kind of like a hybrid between a cross stitch and a 2 stitch cable. No cable needle is required to make this stitch; however, the tightness of the stitch does make the knitting process a bit more challenging. The cross pattern produces a surprisingly dense, rigid and unyielding fabric.  It is a great pattern for pillows and washcloths as well as bags, pillows, or scarves. 

Cast on:  multiple of 2 sts + 1.
Row 1 (Right side): Sl 1 wyib, * knit tbl of the second stitch on the left needle, then knit the first stitch, and drop them both from the needle at the same time;  Repeat from  * to end.
Row 2 (Wrong side): Sl 1 wyif, * purl the second stitch on the left needle, then purl the first stitch, and drop them both from the needle at the same time; Repeat from * to end.
Repeat rows 1-2.

Note: The flexibility of the fabric will increase somewhat through use of a larger pair of needles.
