Alternating Grain Stitch

alternating grain stitch

The Alternating Grain Stitch is another in the family of small two colour pattern knitting stitches. As with all in this group it is simple to learn and easy to execute. Only one colour is used per row, thus avoiding the double fabric formed by carrying yarns across the back as in Fair Isle knitting. The yarn not in use is carried loosely up the side of the work.

With Colour A cast on a multiple of 2 sts. plus 1st, plus 2 edge stitches.

Row 1, With A to end.
Row 2, With A purl to end.
Row 3, With B,K2,*sl1 pw,K1,rep from * to last st. K1.
Row 4,With B,K2,*ytf,sl1 pw,ytb,K1,rep from * to last stitch, K1.
Rows 5 and 6, as 1 and 2.
Row 7, With B,*K1,sl1 pw,rep from * to last st.K1.
Row 8, With B,*K1,ytf,sl1 pw,ytb, rep from * to last stitch, K1.

These 8 rows form the pattern
