*yo, sl 1, k 1, psso*

And that's it!  On both sides!  It's called the Turkish stitch ... and here's what it looks like:

This is my latest favourite stitch.  I'm using it to make a Shoulder Shawl.  It works up really fast and has beautiful elasticity ... I'm  thinking it'll be the perfect thing to wear on a cool summer's eve ... but would be equally suited to wrap around you on a chilly winter day ... curled up in front of the TV watching a great movie ... or on the couch reading a good book.

When finished ... will measure about 15 x 50 inches ... with a narrow Moss stitch border. Cool!

Nice stitch pattern....and a nice colour you're using too.

Very nice, indeed! You'll have to show us when it's all done. I'm sure it'll be lovely.

Hi MA ... if you can believe it ...the yarn is actually just basic black ... the scanner washes it out.
I'm working on another version of this on a baby blanket in Aran yarn ... on larger needles ... that accentuates the pattern even more.

Linda ...thanks ... will definitely share when done.

Hugs ... Marie
