Saturday Stitch: Zig Zag Stockinette Stitch

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

This is a variation of the traditional twisted stockinette stitch. Similar to the regular twisted stitch, the right side rows are knit through the back loop. However, to create the zigzag effect in this variation, the stitches on the wrong side rows are worked as they appear (simply purled the regular way).
The twisted stockinette stitch and its variations create a thick, stable and durable fabric and are especially suitable for homeware projects (pillows,throws etc) or great for accessories such as handbags. 
You can use any number of stitches + 2 edge stitches.


Row 1: edge st, knit across through back loop to last st, edge st
Row 2: edge st, purl across to last st, edge st
Repeat rows 1 and 2.
Difficulty level: Easy
