For this step-by-step tutorial we used a skein of our Petit Wool and size 11 knitting needles.

As usual, before beginning, we give you a list of stitches you should review before embarking on the stitch we show you in this tutorial:

Let’s get started!

Row 7: slip 1 stitch. *Purl 4, knit the 3 strands together with the next stitch, purl 1*.  Repeat from * to * until there is 1 stitch left, knit 1.

In case you aren’t sure how to knit the 3 strands together with the next stitch, we made a video for you:

If your needle gets caught in the fabric, or the stitches slip off your needle, when knitting the 3 strands together with the next stitch, we recommend using your left hand to hold the 3 strands in place to make it easier to pass them onto the right-hand needle.
