We dipped into Cashmere Merino Bloom’s new palette of melodic color to design this joyful composition. Alternating colors each row creates a beautiful woven texture, while changing the colors you’re alternating builds long stripes…. Simple!

Notes

Slip Stitches

Slip all slipped stitches purlwise unless pattern indicates otherwise.

Turn + Slide

When you work the Two-Color Garter Stitch Pattern, you either “slide” or “turn” the work at the end of each row.

“Turn work” means to do what you would normally do when knitting rows with circular needles: Transfer the needle from your left hand into your right hand and the needle from your right hand into your left, flipping the work around so the opposite side is facing you.

“Slide work” means to keep the same side of the work facing you and to push all the stitches to the right end of the circular needles. Without turning the work, start the new row as you normally would.

You will know that you’re doing this right if the yarn you need to complete the next row is right there waiting for you!

Two-Color Garter Stitch Pattern

Row 1 (right side): Slip 1 with Yarn 1 in front and Yarn 2 in back, with Yarn 2, knit to end of row. Slide work.

Row 2 (right side): Slip 1 with yarn in front, with Yarn 1, purl to end of row. Turn work.

Row 3 (wrong side): Slip 1 with Yarn 2 in front and Yarn 1 in back, with Yarn 2, purl to end of row. Slide work.

Row 4 (wrong side): Slip 1 with yarn in back, with Yarn 1, knit to end of row. Turn work.

NOTE: If you’re introducing a new yarn color in Row 1 or 2, for the first slip stitch, just slip the old color yarn. You only introduce the new yarn when it’s time to knit or purl.

Pattern

Begin

With Color A (see MATERIALS), cast on 318 stitches. NOTE: When casting on so many stitches, we recommend placing a stitch marker (or piece of scrap yarn) every 50 stitches. That way, if you lose count, you don’t have to count from the very beginning of the row. Remove the markers as you work the first row.

Row 1 (wrong side): Slip 1 with yarn in front, knit to end of row.

Repeat Row 1 two more times.
