STRIA CARDIGAN TUTORIAL DSSFL, SSBKR

Are you confused about the striated slip stitch pattern on Stria? This photo tutorial will show you the simplest way to work the stitches.

DSSFL

Step One: Drop slipped stitch to front. You can do this with a cable needle, but Kenzie (the yarn recommended for Stria) holds itself quite well and this can be worked without a cable needle, if you prefer.

DSSFL 1

Step Two: K next two stitches on the left needle, then pick up dropped stitch with left needle.

DSSFL 2

You now have the dropped stitch in place to knit it like a normal stitch.

DSSFL 3

Step Three: Knit the slipped st. You now have a left leaning slipped stitch crossover.

DSSFL 4

SSBKR

Step One: Slip two stitches to back.

The example shows slipping these stitches to the back on a cable needle, which can make the process easier (but you can actually work this without a cable needle if you’re using Kenzie or a similar yarn that sticks to itself).

SSBKR 1

Step Two:  Knit next stitch from the left needle (which is the slipped stitch from the previous row), keeping the two stitches at the back, then bring the cable needle forward.

SSBKR 2

Step Three: Knit the two stitches from the cable needle that were held at the back.

SSBKR 3

You now have a right leaning slipped stitch crossover.
