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 (Wrong side): Slip 1 with yarn in front, * purl the second stitch on your needle, do not remove it from your needle. Purl the first stitch on your needle, remove both stitches; Repeat from * to end.
Row 2 (Right side): Slip 1 with yarn in back , * knit the second stitch on your needle by knitting into the back of the stitch, do not remove it from your needle. Knit the first stitch on your needle, remove both stitches; 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.
