i'm knitting the high neck lace top from vogue, and the bodice pattern has a little polka-dot style stitch in that they call 'knot stitch'. It goes "k1, p1, k1 into 1st; turn, k3 together" after that, i would turn the work again, and knit that stitch again to continue across the row (i don't know if that was right or if i should have slipped the stitch onto the other needle). see?
anyway, they don't look nice. they look like little warts. they stick out too much and are all knobbly.
i'm definitely ripping it out, but i still like the idea of 'polka dots'. so, i was wondering if anyone knows an alternative stitch that is less knobbly.
i also tried some alternative stitches on the top row. from left to right they are: the stitch as directed;
- k1, p1, k1 into 1st; turn, k3 together; turn, slip stitch onto other needle.
- k1, p1 into 1st; turn, k2tog; turn, slip stitch
- k1, p1 into 1st; turn, k2tog; turn, slip stitch. this one is done twice, and i think it is my favourite...
what do you all think?
