Knotted Cords Knitting Stitch is a textured knitting pattern featuring motifs resembling intertwined cords, forming beautiful columns with multiple knots. The intricate design will add depth and visual interest to your projects, making them truly unique.
This pattern uses a stitch, kfbf, that increases the number of stitches by knitting the same stitch three times. It essentially means knit into the front, back, and front of the next stitch. So, if you started with one stitch, after kfbf, you’ll end up with three stitches.
(Multiple of 6) + 5 stitches
