Windmill - Stitch Sample

A very interesting decorative windmill stitch pattern. Despite the fact that it's created with simple knit and purl stitches it requires a good deal of attention to the pattern.

Difficulty level: Advanced

Instructions

You need a stitch number multiple of 18 + 1 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the arrows as many times as you like.

Work right side rows (1, 3, etc.) from right to left, as shown in the chart. Work all stitches on the wrong side as they appear.
