To work this stitch in-the-round, knit all stitches on all even numbered rows.

This week is the second video in a new series called Fancy Stitch Combos. In this series I hope to demonstrate stitches that have been requested, and hopefully introduce you to some new ones that I think are pretty and useful. Feel free to drop me a note if you’d like to submit an idea for a video in this series.

Information on things you’ll see in this video:

The sweater I’m wearing is my Ombre Dyed Sweater, pattern + video tutorial.

The scarf on the mannequin is One Row Handspun Scarf, knit with Cascade 220.

The bulky yarn I used in the sample is Berroco Peruvia Quick.

The blue yarn I used in the smaller sample is Berroco Vintage.

The wood needles I use for demonstration are by Clover, size 10.5 (6.5mm).

  1. Love this new series. Will you be doing a video on how to change a pattern to use when working in the round/circular??

  2. Hi Carol – thank you for the note. I give instructions on how to work this stitch in the round (last line of instructions). The technique is exactly the same – you just replace the (mostly) purled even-numbered rows with knit rows. Since the technique is the same, I doubt I’ll be doing another video on this stitch.

  3. I have just finished knitting a baby blanket using the daisy stitch! I got many compliments ???? I wanted to attach a photo but I could not do it…thank you for your videos, they are so clear and easy to follow. I was at the Post Office yesterday mailing the blanket and the lady behind the counter loved the stitch. I told her about your website! We are in Spain mind you but it doesn’t really matter ????
    All the best,
