I’ll bet that some of you never considered the eyelet – or, really, the absence of yarn – could make a line. But it’s another powerful way to create lines!
I’m showing both every RS row and every other RS row. But you should feel free to do what’s right for you!
Keep in Mind
In my case, I chose to work a left-leaning decrease BEFORE the YO for a couple reasons:
- I didn’t want the decreases to form a line. Although, the decreases DID form a line when worked every other row (the right side). Our eyes naturally pick up patterns, even when you’re not trying to make a pattern.
This is just a sampling of what’s in our Stripes & Lines PDF
About the Instructor: Jody Richards
Jody is the founder and lead editor of Knotions. She loves poring over stitch dictionaries and trying out new stitches. And while she likes all things crafting (well ok, except that one thing), yarn crafts are her true love (and she has the stash to prove it).
She’s a serial starter-of-projects and has a serious problem with finishing things without a deadline.
And don’t get her talking about hand-dyed yarns. You’ve been warned.
