Here is a new stitch (new to me at least) I found while playing around
with the looms one day. I’ve chosen to call it the Z stitch, or the
Zigzag stitch or the Mock Crochet stitch. I really like the look it
creates and reminds me alot of open weave (basket weave) crochet.
How to Make it:
To begin, cast on in method you prefer. I would do at least one normal row of ewraps. This shawl is made using a modified Flat Knit Wrap Method. Peg one: Wrap from back (around) to front and knit off.
To recap: You wrapped 1 peg, Knit off, Wrap 2 Pegs, Knit off, Wrap 3 Pegs Knit off.
When you get to the last 3 pegs on your row wrap: Last 3 Pegs, Knit off, Last 2 Pegs Knit off, Last 1 Peg Knit off, and then begin again.
As you can see, when you wrap backwards, it creates a Z shape with some of the yarn behind the peg. This is where the name comes from and you should see the Z bar when ever you are doing the pattern. If you don’t, you didn’t wrap backwards.
Edges create a slightly scalloped edge with points. Open loops easy to add a fancy boarder or leave as is.
One Final close up picture. As you can see the bars are joined in between stitches and create a unique basket weave look.
