Vintage scarf pattern…….a useful item. Machine knit too.

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.
