May 2014 Stitch of the Month Knit


May 2014 Stitch of the Month Knit

 4x4 box stitch

Multiples of 8

For sample cast on 24 stitches

Row 1: Knit 4, Purl 4 across row.

Rows 2, 3, 4: repeat row 1

Row 5: Purl 4, knit 4

Rows 6, 7, 8: repeat row 5.

Repeat these 8 rows until desired length.

There are many combinations of the box stitch. Just reminder at if you want your box stitch 6 x 6, then you need multiples of 12.  For a 12 x 12 box stitch, then you need multiples of 24.

A 6 x 6 box stitch would read:

Row 1: knit 6, purl 6.

Rows 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 repeat row 1

Row 7: Purl 6, Knit 6

Rows 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 repeat row 7.

Just watch your rows and multiples and you can do any combination that you want.
