Dragon Skin

Here is a fascinating variation on the many types of herringbone knitting, with more texture interest than most of the others. The shapes resemble overlapping scales, formed of very graceful curves and overlaid by straight ribs.

Multiple of 26 sts.

Row 1 (Wrong side) and all other wrong-side rows—Purl. Row 2—* Kl. Make One (Ml) by lifting running thread and knitting into the back of this thread; ssk, k4, k2 tog, k3, Ml, k2, Ml, k3, ssk, k4, k2 tog, Ml, kl; rep'from *.
