Diagonal Cross Stitch- Stitchology 32

Loom Knitting
May 2017
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
75 yards (69 m)
8" x 8"
This pattern is available for free.

Our newest venture into loom knitting stitch discovery is this lovely design that creates an amazingly plush and reversible fabric. Feel free to use this for pretty much any type of project, as it is beautiful when viewed on either side. While this technique will employ the use of a cable needle, it doesn’t actually have any cables. The tool will be used to slip one stitch over 3 others to create the slightly honeycomb feel of this design.

We will be changing the format just a little bit for our Stitchology Column. Each of the featured stitches will be explained row by row via both written and video instructions. We will be focusing on highlighting the repeating stitch pattern itself, so that you can enjoy the freedom of putting these new stitch patterns to use in your own projects as creativity strikes. We hope you will enjoy this new way of learning new stitches with us! :) All these things will be included at the link to the Knitting Board Blog above.

For those of you who are still desiring a pattern for a square to continue with your afghan plans, the information on yarn used, etc can be found below, and the chart for the square can be downloaded right here at my Ravelry Store. I hope to continue providing this extra step for my readers as long as I can. Enjoy!*

Items Needed

Loom: Authentic Knitting Board Adjustable Hat Loom: 2 rounded pieces + 3 peg connectors, with pegs in all holes for a 3/8” gauge. The Sock Loom 2 or the All-n-One Loom could also be used.

Yarn: approx. 75 yards Worsted Weight (Sample uses Berroco Vintage in sakura)

Notions: Loom tool, yarn needle, scissors. (Also helpful: cable needle, peg markers, row counter, and blocking pins)

Pattern Notes:

To work this pattern in the round, such as for a hat, use the Repeating Pattern Rows chart, and make sure to read it from right to left for each row, rather than alternating sides each time. Also, cast onto your loom in a clockwise direction, using a number of pegs that is divisible by 4—the number of stitches required for each pattern repeat. (It will be helpful to see the pattern notes at the link to the blog where the entire pattern can be found, as there are extra instructions for knitting in the round.)

For flat pieces of a greater size, simply increase the number of Repeating Pattern Rows inside the garter stitch edges for the length and width required, then complete with the Finishing Rows. (It will be helpful to see the pattern notes at the link to the blog where the entire pattern can be found, as there are extra instructions for knitting as a panel.)
