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-row 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, this is 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 🙂
