Stitchy Saturday: Traveling Vine Stitch

Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. Today is another beautiful Saturday, and so far I have been knitting this lovely stitch I found today while looking on Instagram (which has lots of ideas for knitting stitches at #knittingstitches). It is so helpful to look on Instagram, because usually you find some swatches of stitches other knitters have tried out. I found the Traveling Vine stitch on Instagram today and loved this stitch knitted in green yarn, it looks beautiful. Unfortunately I don't own any green yarn, I will have to go out and get some to knit a scarf in this stitch that would look so nice. For now I have knitted this stitch pattern in red yarn which looks pretty too. I hope you want to give this one a try, it is a little tricky in some rows when you have to SSP (slip, slip, purl) but I got the hang of it after awhile and it helped to watch Knitting Stitch Patterns' video tutorial. Hope you enjoy this stitch pattern!

What I thought: 
I loved this stitch, it was a learning experience for me because I learned how to SSP( slip,slip,purl) and it became easier after awhile. I love how this stitch pattern looks and I just love lace patterns now because they look so beautiful and have curved sides and bottom and look very feminine. When I saw this stitch on Instagram I fell in love with it knitted in green and thought this would be a lovely scarf. I love plants so this stitch pattern appealed to me even more because of the travelling vine makes me think of a vine plant that never ends. 

Knitter level: 
Intermediate: I would say this one is a little more on the challenging side and there are lots of rows with not very many repeats. The SSP method was a little fiddly at times and it might be a bit challenging. I enjoyed this pattern because it gave me more of a challenge.
