zig-zag stashbuster

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

Right Side:
K1- K2TOG *K4 - DOUBLE INC - K4 - DOUBLE DEC* K4 - SSK - K1
(repeat the pattern between * until the last 7 stitches)

Wrong Side:

  15. My zig zag afghan is on my bed right now. Crocheted by my grandmother (out of her stash and much of the yarn is recognizable from other blankets I remember) and kept my grandfather warm for years and years. I love that pattern!
