I just knit a swatch of a 3-row, 3-stitch-repeat pattern that I like.
Cast on a multiple of 3 stitches.
Row 1: *Knit 1, purl 2, repeat from * to end.
Row 2: same as row 1
Row 3: Knit.
It has (barely) mostly knit stitches (5:4 knit:purl). It has a very intriguing texture, almost like a waffle weave. And, of course, since it’s 3 rows, it’s a reversible fabric.
Here’s the chart:
I’ll post a picture soon.
