Knitting Pattern: Leaves of Grass

Leaves Of Grass (multiple of 11 sts)

Note: the instructions below are a generic description of how to execute this stitch pattern. For a single repeat, you'd only need eleven stitches but you'd have a VERY narrow piece! In the example shown, there are three repeats of the stitch, so to make a swatch that looks like the one shown, you need to cast on 33 stitches (3 x the multiple of 11 stitches needed for a single repeat of the pattern.)

Row 1 (RS) *Yo, ssk, k9; rep from * to end. 
Row 2 and all WS rows Purl.
