knit/lab/eBook/stacked stitches vol. 2
A collection of six adventurous knitting patterns featuring stacked decreases and increases.
The technique is used in industrial machine knitting to create dramatic chevrons and distortions in knitted fabric, notably by Missoni in Italy. American designer Xandy Peters introduced the technique to hand knitting. I have developed varitions of the techniques. Three of the patterns in this collection have both stacked increases & decreases; the other three have stacked decreases paired with different types of increases.
