Special Stitches

The Houndstooth Stitch

The Houndstooth Stitch is made up of a 2-st sequence: (sc, dc) in st indicated. After each round of Houndstooth you turn your work and repeat the sequence, making sure that each dc is worked into a sc st from the previous round and vice versa. The last st of each round is worked into the same sp as the starting ch.

Pattern Notes

These gloves are worked from the cuff up. Make the foundation chain loosely to allow for stretching.

Change colors when you slip stitch to join at the end of the round and carry the yarn on the inside of the glove.

Starting chain does NOT count as a stitch.

The end of each round is joined by slip stitching in the first stitch of the round, not the starting chain.
