This is a subtle but very effective pattern of contrasting purl stitches and gently curved knit stitches.

Multiple of 16 sts.

Row 3—* P3, k2 tog, k3, lift running thread between the st just worked and the next st, and knit into the back and front of this thread; k3, ssk, p3; rep from *.

Row 5—* P2, k2 tog, k3, lift running thread and knit into the back of this thread (Make One, Ml); k2, Ml, k3, ssk, p2; rep from *.

Row 7—* PI, k2 tog, k3, Ml, k4, Ml, k3, ssk, pi; rep from *.

Row 9—* K2 tog, k3, Ml, k6, Ml, k3, ssk; rep from *.

Repeat Rows 1-10.

VARIATION:

DOUBLE WING, OPENWORK VERSION

Work exactly as above, with these exceptions:

Row 3—* P3, k2 tog, k3, (yo) twice, k3, ssk, p3; rep from *. Row 4—K3, p4, purl into front and back of double yo, p4, k3; rep from *.

Work the rest of the pattern as above but with a "yo" in place of every "Ml". Now you can see the close family resemblance between this pattern and Pine Trees!
