How to knit smock pattern over 1 knit, 2 purls, 1 knit

In this DROPS video we show you how to create a smock pattern by winding the yarn 2 times around 4 stitches (1 knit, 2 purls, 1 knit). We work 2 edge stitches in each side and we have already knitted a few cm of pattern (1 knit, 2 purls, 1 knit).

We start the video on the row where we are going to wind the yarn around the 4 stitches to create a smock pattern. Put the 4 stitches (1 knit, 2 purls, 1 knit) on a cable needle back of the work, wind the working yarn twice around this 4 stitches, then knit this stitches (1 knit, 2 purls, 1 knit). Choose by yourself how many rows there should be between each winding, and to create a texture; wind the yarn around the 4 next stitches before and 4 stitches after the last winding.

We use the yarn DROPS Eskimo in the video.
