How to knit an exciting texture pattern

In this DROPS video we show how to knit a part of the texture pattern in DROPS 194-5, this technique is also used in other patterns. In the pattern you work in the round, but in this video we work only from the right to the left side and 3 rows of a chart, see the red outline.

In 1st row work like this (black triangle that crosses 3 squares):
= insert right needle through the middle of the 3 knit stitches 4 rounds below, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn back to right, yarn over must not be too tight, knit 3, insert right needle through same stitch, make 1 yarn over and pull yarn back to right side.

In 2nd row work like this (a black line over 5 squares):
= slip 1st stitch (= yarn over made on previous round) knitwise, knit 3, slip next stitch (= yarn over made on previous round) purlwise.

In 3rd row work like this:
1st, 3rd and 5th black triangle over 2 squares = knit 2 stitches twisted together.
2nd, 4th and 6th black triangle over 2 squares = knit 2 together.

This jumper is knitted in DROPS Air, but in the video we work with a thicker yarn; DROPS Eskimo. You must read the pattern, chart explanations and look at the charts to be able to follow this video properly. You’ll find a pattern by clicking on the picture below.
