Loom Knit Stitches: Little Chevron & Cable Twist Stitch

After releasing the Little Chevron Cowl & Matching Hat, I had numerous requests for the stitch pattern to be provided for a flat panel to create a shawl or a scarf. While I don’t have a shawl pattern for you, or even a scarf pattern, I did sit down and created a video on the how-tos of getting the stitch done as a flat panel.

The video is below, but if you are like me, I much rather have written instructions, or even better–just give me a chart. If you have the chart, you really don’t need much else–print it out and go to town with it.

WRITTEN:

Abbreviations:
k=knit (u-stitch, or true knit stitch)

p=purl

ssk=slip, slip knit

k2tog=knit two stitches together

yo=yarn over

LC=Left Cross (Access my cable tutorial)

INSTRUCTIONS

Row 1: *k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k1, p1, k2, p1; rep from * to last 7 sts, k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k1.

Row 2: *k7, p1, k2, p1; rep from * to last 7 sts, k7.

Row 3: *k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk, p1, LC, p1, rep from * to last 7 sts, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, ssk.

Row 4: *k7, p1, k2, p1; rep from * to last 7 sts, k7.

Repeat Rows 1-4.

CHART

The stitch pattern is a multiple of 11+7 stitches | Over 4 rows.

The stitch pattern is a combination of 2 stitch patterns that I combined–the small chevron on the right, followed by a cable twist. Could it have been different? Definitely–you could change it so you start with the cable and end with a cable. I wanted mine to start with a lace section and end with a lace section.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE VIDEO: The stitch pattern in the video is encased in garter stitch edges. The video does not show the creation of the garter stitch edges. As such, you are welcome to put an edging of your desire onto whatever it is that you are creating. The edging can be garter, seed, another lace edging, etc.
