Ripple Stitch

            First stitch in the book where Barbra doesn't say anything about it so I guess this oe is going to be short and sweet. Technically a series of purl welts changing positions subtly every row. (The guy who put the b in subtle was a clever bastard) It's a pretty long pattern this time around so let's get into it.

Swatch is as follows: 4ply - 2.5mm needles - 30st x 50st - Long Tail CON - Surprisingly Stretchy COFF

            As you can see it's a pretty short pattern it takes nearly as long to work as garter stitch so a slow one this week, combined with the fact that the pattern is a pretty long one I wouldn't personally use it as an overall pattern but it is very nice so it would make nice squares in a blanket.

Pattern working flat:
CON 8st + 6
Row 1 - K6*P2,K6*
Row 2 - K1*P4,K4*P4,K1
Row 3 - P2*K2,P2*
Row 4 - P1*K4,P4*
Row 5 - K2*P2,K6*P2,K2
Row 6 - P6*K2,P6*
Row 7 - P1*K4,P4*K4,P1
Row 8 - K2*P2,K2*
Row 9 - K1*P4,K4*P4,K1
Row 10 - P2*K2,P6*K2,P2

The pattern is the same in the round but on even rows the knits are purls and purls are knits. IE:
Row 2 - P1*K4,P4*K4,P1
