Figuring out how to knit a particular stitch

by Elaine

I want to incorporate a particular knit design into a blanket but I have only seen it in a picture. I don't know the name of that design and don't know the pattern to knit it. Can you figure it out?

See the picture below.

Mysterious stitch
by: Elaine

Hi Ratcha, thank you so much for working on this for me. I’ve been trying to follow your instructions, though it is not working out. In row five I usually end up with either too many stitches or not enough i.e. more than 13 or less than 13. Questions: when it’s marked k2, is that k2 together?, when it’s marked slip stitch, do you slip it as a knit or as a pearl? And where it’s marked inc do you increase on the front of the stitch or the back of the stitch? Sorry for all the questions but I’m getting stymied and I’m looking forward to seeing your tutorial video.

Multiple of 4+1
In the photo, I casted on 13 stitches.

Row 1: p1 *k3,p1; repeat from * to end of row
Row 2: k1 *p3, k1; repeat from * to end of row
Row 3-4: same as row 1 and 2.
Row 5: *p1, inc 1, sl1, k2, psso, inc 1; repeat from * to last st, p1.
Row 6: k2 *p1, k3; repeat from * to last 3 sts, p1, k2.
Row 7: p2 *k1, p3; rep from * to last 3 st, k1, p2.
Row 8. k2 * p1, k3; rep from * to last 3 st, p1, k2.

I'm not sure if you like the result. If not then it will be a good experience for me trying to figure this out.

Have a great day!

figuring out the stitch pattern
by: Ratchadawan

I've tried to work this stitches out for several hours. Then I realized that the pattern is up side down.

It's a bit tricky and I'm still working at it.
Will get back to you.
