Read about this cute top pattern Here.
Right: Anchalee wearing a knitted top with this Eiffel Tower Stitch Pattern.
I have just finished knitting a girl top for my daughter using Eiffel Tower stitch pattern. The pattern is very simple and easy enough for beginners to try.
The only stitches involved with this pattern are knit, purl, p2tog and yrn (yarn round needle). At first, I wasn't sure how those stitches would turn into Eiffel towers but eventually they did turned into many tiny towers.
That's what I enjoy and love most about
knitting - An Exciting moment! seeing how 2 sticks transform a thread
into something so amazing.
Here is the pattern which I have written for both in rounds and in rows.
Multiple of 4 sts
Rnd 1 (right side): * yrn, p2tog, p2; rep from * to end of round.
Rnd 2 – Rnd 7: * K1, p3; rep from * to end of round.
Rnd 8: Purl.
Rnd 9: P2, * yrn, p2tog, p2; rep from * to last 2 sts, yrn, p2tog.
Rnd 10 – Rnd 15: P2, *K1, p3; rep from * to last 2 sts, K1, p1.
Rnd 16: Purl.
Repeat these 16 rounds.
Multiple of 4 sts + 1
Row 1 (right side): P4,*yrn,p2tog, p2; rep from * to last st, p1.
Row 2: K4, * p1, k3; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 3: P4, * k1, p3; rep from * to last st, p1.
Repeat row 2 and 3 twice more.
Row 8: Knit.
Row 9: P2, * yrn, p2tog, p2; rep from * to last 3 sts, yrn, p2tog, p1.

Repeat row 10 and 11 twice more.
