Inside: Written instructions and tutorial video to help you learn the loom knit reverse Edelweiss stitch. Instructions included for both flat panel and in the round.
While I was converting the Edelweiss stitch pattern to work on the loom, I created a happy accident! I’m calling this new stitch pattern the Reverse Edelweiss stitch.
Like the original stitch it creates small clusters of stitches that lean either to the right or left, depending on the direction you are loom knitting. Personally, I think the clusters look like mini tulips so I’m tempted to call it the mini tulip stitch.
This beautifully textured stitch pops out a little more than the original Edelweiss stitch, but shares many of the same features.
Loom Knit Reverse Edelweiss Stitch Features:
- Finished fabric doesn’t curl so you don’t need a border
- Small clusters lean either to the right or left depending on the direction you loom knit
- The fabric is very stretchy and had a slightly open airy feel
- Stitch pattern works both a flat panel or in the round
