Little Crown Knitting Stitch

little crown knitting stitch

This pattern calls for you to wrap the yarn twice around the needle between your knit one stitches. The reason for this is that by wrapping extra loops around the needle then dropping them in the next row provides you with loose stitches so that you can make multiple stitches while stitching through 3 stitches together.

Skill level: Intermediate; 3 Stitch pattern repeat.

Multiple of 3 + 2.
1st row (right side): Knit.
2nd row: Knit
3rd row: K2, *wrap yarn around needle twice, k1; rep from * to end.
