February 5th 2016 Swatch – Rice Stitch
Copyright © Janet Nogle
Materials: 1 Skein cotton yarn
#7 US Needle
K1 b = Knit in back of stitch.
Multiple of 2+1 (for this swatch we will be adding 20+1 + 2 border = 23)
This is a simple design but is a good stitch for blankets, squares and has a little texture to it. If you wanted to make a dishcloth, just make it 30 +1 + 6 border = 37 stitches.
Cast on 23 stitches
Row 1: Knit across
Row 2: Knit across
Row 1: (WS) K1, P1, *K1 b, P1; repeat from * , end K1.
Row 2: (RS) Knit Across
Repeat above 2 rows till desired length. Knit 2 rows for border.
I repeated the 2 rows 14 more times and then knit the small border.
Bind off and weave in ends.
