Star Stitch

Star Stitch

Non -Reversible
Multiples of 4 + 1 (staggered)

photo shows DK weight, size 6 needles
swatch is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, 33 stitches, 40 rows

Because this stitch pattern is staggered, you will start the pattern on the second stitch of the second row, and the fourth stitch of the fourth row. You will also have two extra stitches at the end of each fourth row. All the stitches, not in pattern, are just knit.

I didn't realize how striped this pattern would look, in the two colors. I don't particularly like it. However, done in a multi and a solid (that is a color in the multi), I think it would look fantastic.

There isn't much, if any, drape. The stars create tiny holes, so it's not as dense as you might expect.
