Adding something new and different to your knitting repertoire can be fun and challenging. The trinity stitch pattern is a short repeating pattern that not only adds dimension to your work, but also is one that takes on a vastly different look depending on what gauge yarn you choose and what size needles you work with. Here are the steps to create the trinity stitch pattern.
Things You'll Need
- Knitting needles
- Fine or heavy gauge yarn
- Good light
- Cozy chair
Check the gauge. Work the following rows into a small sample and measure your stitches. This assures you that your finished piece will not be too big or too small.
Create row 1. Purl as many stitches as needed to get the width piece you need.
Knit row 2 by knitting 1, purling 1, knitting 1 all into the same stitch then purling 3 stitches together. Repeat this pattern until the row is finished.
Make the third row by purling across your work.
Finish the pattern's forth row by purling 3 stitches together, then knitting 1, purling 1 and knitting 1 all into the same stitch. Repeat this pattern to the end of the row.
Tips & Warnings
- The trinity pattern can look like popcorn puckers when using thick yarn or dainty lace when using a fine gauge yarn. Experiment and have fun with this stitch.
- The trinity stitch pattern is worked on the right side of the piece. Be sure you do not turn your piece while working it or you could end up with something that does not look like a trinity stitch.
