Skill level: 2/4 skill-2

Row by row instruction:

Cast on multiple of 10 plus 6

Row 1: k
Row 2: k
Row 3 :(right side of work):  k6, * (yo) twice, k1, (yo) 3 times, k1, (yo) 4 times, k1, (yo) 3 times, k1, (yo) twice, k6, rep. from *
Row 4: k while dropping all yo’s off needle
Row 5: k
Row 6: k
Row 7: k1, * (yo) twice, k1, (yo) 3 times, k1, (yo) 4 times, k1, (yo) 3 times, k1, (yo) twice, k6, rep. from *, end last rep with k1
Row 8: Rep row 4

    Can these be used for doll dresses and how would you make the pattern smaller

      You could try using a very lightweight yarn, and reducing the number of yarn overs, dropped stitches, and knit stitches between the dropped ones. For example, you could turn row 3 into k3, *(yo) once, k1, (yo) twice, k1, (yo) once, k3, rep from *. Which would make row 7 k1, *(yo) once, k1, (yo)twice, k1, (yo) once, k6, rep from * ending last rep with k1. If my interpretation of the pattern is true, I think that would turn the number of cast-ons into a multiple of 6 plus 3.

      I guess what I’m saying is, there is a lot of room for experimentation with this stitch (and I have clearly had too much coffee today).

      Happy knitting. 🙂

      PS, if you do get this reply (I see your post was ages ago) and you have an Instagram, it would be neat to see what you came up with. My Instagram is willknit4hugs.
