Guelder-rose Knit Stitch Pattern

Knitting materials and tools:

<> DPN 4 mm (UK 8 or US 6)

<> Super Corfou – 100% Acrylic, Color # 45, 40 grams – 95 meters.

Common abbreviations of knit stitches:

k – knit

p – purl

st(s) – stitch(es)

sel s – selvage stitch: always slip the first stitch purlwise, work to the last stitch, purl the last stitch

yo – yarn over

dwk – double wrap knit stitch: insert the needle through the stitch and instead of wrapping once, wrap the working yarn twice, then pull through like a normal knit stitch.

Guelder-rose stitch instructions:

Cast on a multiple of 11 sts plus 1 extra stitches, plus 2 selvage stitches. In my example 36 stitches.

Row1: sel s, purl all stitches, sel s.

Row 2: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s.

Row 3: sel s, *k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, [dwk] – 6 times, k1, yo, k1, yo – repeat from *, k1, sel s.

Row 4: sel s, *p5, slip next 6 stitches from the right-hand needles to the left without knitting, as a result you will get 6 long stitches, p4 – repeat from *, p1, sel s.

Row 5: sel s, * k5, knit next 6 stitches through the back loops first and after through the front loops, as a result you will get 2 stitches from 6, k4– repeat from *, k1, sel s.

Row 6: sel s, purl all stitches, sel s.

Row 7: sel s, knit all stitches, sel s.

Row 8: sel s, purl all stitches, sel s.

Repeat Rows 1-8 to form the pattern

I really enjoy learning new stitches, I think I learn one at least everyday. I have been crocheting and knitting since I was 7 years old. Some of the old stitches are coming back. I love that stitch you just did it was really beautiful looking but I am trying to figure out what to use it for?!. I want to use it, not sure yet how.

Hi Angel. Thank you for your feedback. You are right the stitch is really beautiful but not all knit projects. I see it mostly for cardigans. For all cardigan or as an element. Please share if you decide to knit something using this
stitch, I am interested to know. You are knitting since you were 7 yo, wow…… I am sure you are an experienced knitter

Would it be possible to make this stitch a baby blanket. It is so beautiful and if possible how many stitches would I need

Hi Marge, you need to knit a small swatch and check how many stitches you have in 10 cm. Then multiple sts by 10 if you want your blanket to be 1 meter for example. I hope it helps

There is no way to download or print this pattern. I really would like to knit this but can’t print it out.
