Dueling Stripes ~ free knit pattern by Jessie At Home

Dueling Stripes

Twisted and Twirled MKAL #3
Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

The third necklace in the Twisted and Twirled Knit necklace series is made with the linen stitch in the round. The linen stitch has a wonderful texture on both sides, yet both sides are different. The name: Dueling Stripes, comes from the fact that on what is usually considered the right side of the linen stitch the stripes of color wrap around the necklace, and on what is usually considered the wrong side of the linen stitch the stripes go up and down on the necklace. This necklace has 4 twists in it, showing off both sides of the stitch. This beautifully textural necklace can be worked up in no time with less than 40 yards of fingering weight yarn.

The yarn used in this sample was donated by Phydeaux Designs & Fiber for the Quest at the summer 2015 TNNA Needlearts Trade Show.

This necklace is part of the Twisted and Twirled MKAL (Mystery Knit ALong).
