It was love at first sight when I’ve discovered this stitch and even it looks intricate is very simple to do. I love the texture of this little knots, it’s resemble stars. I think this pattern works very well for sweaters, jackets, throws, pillow covers, baby blankets.
For this stitch I recommend a DK yarn (I think light colors will reveal the stitch very beautiful) and 4,5-5mm needles.
P3tog= purl 3 sts together;
MS= P3tog leaving sts on left needle, then wrap yarn around right needle and purl the same 3 sts together again- this time slipping the sts off the needle to complete the knot.
Cast on multiple of 4 sts plus 1.
This is the video tutorial, just hit “play” to see how this stitch it’s done.
The written pattern:
Row 1: Knit;
Row 2: P1, *MS, P1*, repeat *-* to end of row;
Row 3: knit;
Row 4: P3, MS, *P1, MS*, repeat *-* to last 3 sts, P3.
Repeat rows 1-4 for star stitch.
