I used this for a lunch-bag and bottle carrier set I was making so I could carry around some gluten-free goodies for our explorations in Sweden in the early summer. The stitch combination worked so well for these, so I was keen to add it into our Reversible Knitting Stitches E-book. That's the beauty of an E-book isn't it – you can add in just a few new pages really easily.
This is Three-Colour Linen Stitch and I can see myself using this in a project soon. I think this would work really well for a set of placemats and coasters. Linen Stitch and this colourful variation are slow to work, but are such strong, interesting stitches so it is well worth the extra time needed.
In addition, we have received some suggestions for a few new stitches from readers, so this seemed like an ideal opportunity to add those in. Many thanks to everyone who sent those to us. We love trying out new stitch patterns, so please do keep sending in your ideas so we can incorporate them into future updates.
I have been using this stitch a lot for recent projects as I wanted to make a set of winter garments for our current stay in Sweden. When we left Florida in October it was about 32ºC and as I write this, it is only 2ºC… brrr….. Lovely for early snow pictures for my husband Tim, but decidedly chilly otherwise. I’ll take some photos of what I’ve been knitting recently and will post about those in a future blogpost.
We also added in photos of the Darlington Lace Wrap and the Grayswood Scarf in Chapter 11, Lace & Mesh Patterns. Both of those were finished too late to be included last time, so I am pleased that we have managed to fit them into this update.
I have already uploaded this new updated version to my website here. Alternatively, you can also find it on Etsy and on PayHip. I hope you enjoy these new stitches and find good uses for them in your future work.
