knit/lab/camino zigzags

The first in a series of patterns combining plain knitted areas with an airy drop stitch mesh.


The sample is quite small and was made with one ball of sock yarn.

Finished dimensions of sample shown in photos: 100x50cm/39x20in.

The sample was knit on 3.25mm/US3 needles with one ball 100g/420m/459yds of Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball Sock yarn, Tropical Fish colorway.


Approximate dimensions with two balls: 200g/840m/918yds: 200x50cm/78x20in


The pattern is very easy: yarn overs, decreases, knitting through the back loop, and a “make one” increase.

The change in gauge between the plain knit areas and the mesh creates a subtle wavy distortion - perfect for variegated and self-striping yarns, or multifarious leftovers.


The series of patterns is called Camino because the first sample I did reminded me of the scallop shell symbol of the Camino de Santiago.


The pdf includes 3 charts and instructions.
