I wrote this pattern with the concepts that it be modular so as to work well with using handspun yarn, and that the module would resemble a moth and its flightpath. You can increase to any number of stitches that you like the look of, I thought 23 was perfect for the worsted to aran weight yarn I was working with. You can block or leave as is.
- Cast on 5 sts.
- Row 1: k1, yo, k3, yo, k1
- Row 2 and all even rows: k across
- Row 3: k2, yo, k3, yo, k2
Continue to alternate even k rows and increase rows, with one more st on each side of the center k3 each increase row. Use stitch markers if that helps you. Continue until you reach 23 sts, then bind off on the even row until you have 5 sts left. Knit remaining stitches. Repeat from the beginning to make more modules until you run low on yarn or reach desired number of modules, then bind off all sts at the end of the last module.
