K-Stitch

The K-Stitch is one of my favourite mesh stitches. This tutorial shows you my favourite combination, where I chain 1 and skip 1 stitch between each K-Stitch. That allows me to alternate the stitches on the next row and create a beautiful mesh star-looking pattern.

Instructions

Place your yarn around the hook twice and push the hook through the “V” – place the yarn around your hook again and pull back through the “V”.

This tutorial works with a multiple of 4 stitches. If you choose to work continuous K-stitches without the chain space you multiply by 3 stitches. To get the height of the stitch you chain 4, but if you want a seamless look to your project, try the Chainless Starting Stitch.
