Woven Diagonal Stitch

 

The Woven Diagonal stitch is a knitted pattern made to resemble weaving which runs diagonally across the work. Done in a multiple of 6 stitches plus 2 and is a 6-row repeat, this stitch is perfect for edge-work and accents for all types of knitting projects! Blocking is recommended for optimal results.
