This week's stitch pattern is titled Garter Diagonals. This pattern is an 8 stitch repeat and the simple knit and purl stitch combination creates this effect.
For my swatch I cast on 24 stitches doing 3 repeats of the pattern rows. I used U.S. size 7 knitting needles and worsted weight yarn. The swatch is approximately 6 inches wide. The pattern is 16 rows and what makes this really simple is that every right side row is knit stitch. The swatch is 1 and half repeats of the rows in the pattern making the swatch 4 inches long.
I see endless possibilities in this stitch pattern especially if it is used with an equal repeat in the other direction creating a V shape with the garter stitch sections.
What would you use this stitch pattern to create?
