The knitting machine can achieve this stitch readily. It is a simple lace
Stitch. It can be programmed on an electronic/ punchcard and lace carriages or use the manual hand transferred method.
Start on waste knitting.
Row 1 …Move every other stitch onto its neighbour needle in 1 direction only. Knit the row.
Row 2 ….knit across.
Repeat these 2 rows.
This will produce a diagonal biasing textile.
The ends can be finished in any chosen method.
I like it for scarves.
