Bamboo with Leaves Stitch

I’m so proud of this, heh.

Pattern : 8 sts in 8 rows : Knitted in the round and top down. (Not for straight knitting)

  1. K3 yo K2 soyo K3
  2. K8
  3. S8 wyif
  4. K3 yo K2 soyo K3
  5. S8 wyif
  6. K8
  7. K3 yo K2 wtsubs soyo K3
  8. K3 K2 uls K3

For staggard pattern, start row 1 at 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8. (Rows 3 and 5 can never be side by side with each other).

If row 1 starts at an odd number row, then bamboo stitch all 4th & 5th stitches in the odd rows.
If row 1 starts at an even numbered row, then bamboo stitch all 4th and 5th stitches in the even rows.

This is a really cool design and you knitted it in such a pretty green color.

It don’t look like much in this image, but I just found a method to add a flower stalk to the bamboo stitch. Thir would mean that anything knitted with this could have a sky with things above the bamboo.

The mind is awash with idears.
