zig-zag: the Missoni signature stitch
When I posted about
as a stashbuster projects,
I didn't mention zig-zag.
I'm old fashion, and chevron is still "zig-zag" for me :)
This knitting pattern, mastered by Missoni for long time, is another great way to use a lot of leftover yarn and getting a great look "virtually free".
You can obtain the zig-zag look with different patterns, both knitting and crocheting.
I'm knitting mine (guess what will it be?) following this pattern:
cast stitches multiple of 12 + 3
K1- K2TOG *K4 - DOUBLE INC - K4 - DOUBLE DEC* K4 - SSK - K1
(repeat the pattern between * until the last 7 stitches)
