Saturday Stitch: X Stitch

Every Saturday I will share with you a new stitch.
Today’s stitch is: X Stitch.


X stitch is a simple and yet very elegant knit and purl stitch, that would be perfect for a luxurious set of cushions, a throw, a hand bag and even a sweater. You need a stitch number multiple of 12 + 1 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the * as many times as you like.
