Diagonal Scallop Stitch

Here is a lovely, quick-knitting "little" texture pattern thai is ideal for converting that dull stockinette sweater, dress, or coat into an interesting garment. It makes a nice firm fabric with hardly any curl to it, and so is easy to block. Naturally, because the passed-over strands pull the stitches together, the fabric is tighter than stockinette stitch and will require more stitches for any given measurement. Check your gauge, adjust ihe number of stitches accordingly, and then knii something really pretty, patterned all over with these attractive little diagonals.

Multiple of 4 sts plus 2. Rows 1 and 3 (Wrong side)—Purl.

Row 2-—Kl, * insert needle from behind under the running thread between the si just worked and the next si, ihus putting an extra strand on the needle; k2, then pass the exira strand over the 2 knit sts; k2; rep from *, end kl. Row 4—K3, rep from * of Row 2; end last repeat kl instead of k2.
