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.

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I I have decreased stitches as I go on with that pattern. The pattern does not work out for me. Could you address this matter please.

Hey Janine. Did you watch the video? What is wrong exactly? Do you have less stitches? or the pattern does not look similar? Let me know

I have less stitches. Not sure what I did wrong. When I pulled the 6 stitches together maybe? I am a newer knitter but still not sure what I did.

yes, right, the mistake can be exactly at this point. It is better recalculate before you pull it. If you follow the video you can press play back speed button and make video work more slowly. And if you try one more time please let me know how was it. And remember today you are beginner and tomorrow you are an experienced knitter, so do not give up
