Estonian Slanted Rib or False Entrelac Capelet or wee Poncho

by on May.26, 2015, under Blog

I have created another wee capelet or small poncho using this stitch knitted in the round of course. It is so easy – a pattern over 6 stitches k2, YON, k2, K2tog. Perfect.

I decided to see what would happen if I knitted the stitch on 2 needles flat instead of “in the round” and the result is quite pleasing. I knitted my sample over 28 stitches, with a 2 stitch selvedge.

Slip 1 k1 “k2, YON, k2, k2tog” repeat to last 2 stitches k2
Slip 1 p1 “p2tog, p2, YON, p2” repeat to last 2 stitches p1, k1.

It has a gracious curve to the right and the selvedges don’t curl – would be great for a scarf or shawl.

I like that a scarf or shawl knitted in Estonian Slanted Rib will be reversible as the wrong side looks very different but doesn’t look wrong – it is an interesting ribbed ridge for want of a better term.
