For this step by step, we’re using one skein of Recycled yarn and our 5 mm knitting needles.

Before we get into the instructions, as always, here’s a short list of the stitches that will be helpful for you to know (or to review):

To begin to knit this stitch, you should cast on a multiple of 3 stitches plus 2 extra.

3 stitch cross

When knitting this stitch, we’re going to tell you to do a 3 stitch cross. Work the cross like this: with the yarn behind the work, skip the first 2 stitches on the left needle and insert the right needle into the third stitch to knit it. Without dropping the stitches from the needle, knit the first stitch that you skipped and then knit the second stitch you skipped. Drop the 3 stitches from the left needle.

Now here’s a video so you can picture that more clearly:

Let’s get knitting!
