Saturday Stitch: Rose Stitch.

Every Saturday I will share with you a new stitch.
Today's stitch is: Rose Stitch.

Instructions :

Row 1: k2, *p1, k1; rep from *, end k1
Row 2 (RS): k1, *k1 in st in row below, k1; rep from *
Row 3: k1, *p1, k1; rep from *
Row 4: k2, *k1 in st in row below, k1; rep from *, end k1
Rose Stitch is another simple stitch that  provides nice texture and diagonal lines which also has easy to remember repeats. It's not as difficult as it seems to knit in the stitch in the row below. Literally insert your needle into the center of the st in the row below the next st on the left needle, then knit as normal. It's great for jackets, scarves, afghans, pillows or baby blankets etc. You need a stitch number multiple of 2 + 1  Repeat the pattern between the * as many times as you like.

Difficulty level: Easy
