Just after designing my Spring Thaw Mitts, I wanted to have matching items and began to knit a little tam.
As you probably know, Broken seed stitch my mitts feature is characterized by an alternation of knit-purl rows and purl-knit rows like the classical Seed stitch. For my mitts, I’d found a solution for increases that doesn’t disturb this pattern, but with a tam, I had to rack my brains this time for crown decreases!
As promised at the end of the last post, here’s a tutorial of a new? short rows technique – a mix of W&T and Japanese method.
On RS (from RS to WS), as with W&T method, you knit to the turn-back point, slip one stitch, and bring your working yarn in front. I usually replace wrapped sts onto LN before turning work, it’s more secure.
Haven’t you seen the patterns featuring Broken seed stitch and been intrigued, like me?
I’d wanted to give a try this stitch pattern, and chose a hand-dyed variegated skein for that (so as not to worry about color choice!)
Here’s my beautiful skein 🙂
