This fabric is produced by leaving 2 needles out of working position while the carriage is set for tuck, using the 1 x 1 card (Card 1) The purl side shows the fabric best.
This fabric uses pattern 3 from Stitch World I. It has a repeat of 5 stitches so is unsuitable for punch card machines. The needles are arranged with 3 in working position and then 2 out of working position.
Here is the purl side of pattern 3. The carriage is set for tuck throughout. I am working on a similar pattern for punch card machines. I am hoping to have that pattern available soon. I'll let you know.
This is a manually knitted pattern. The needles are arranged so that 1 needle is in working position and the next one is out of work. The carriage is set so that needles in hold position will not knit.
