A Trinity Stitch by any name would be as textured.
As mentioned in the comments, Trinity Stitch is known by a number of names. Blackberry, Bramble, Astrakan, etc.
I do really like the look of it, and always have.
Is there any compelling reason to knit it from the right side, rather than having row 1 (WS) knit across, row 2 (RS) [k3tog, (p1,k1,p1) in same st], etc.? I generally reverse any st pattern that’s all K and P and has plain purl rows in it, as my knits are more even, and changing this would put the patterning on the right side, in sync with any cabling that’s going on. It’d be one row offset from how it’d normally be, but that doesn’t seem like it’d be a huge difference visually in this context.
I don’t see why this wouldn’t work. However, I do find it easier to purl 3 together than to knit 3 together, which is reason enough for me to work it as I noted in yesterday’s blog.
Also, one of the things I so like about knitting arans is doing something interesting on each rown. I like that the fun part of Trinity stitch is done on the wrong side rows — it makes them more interesting.
How Do You Gauge an Aran?
How do you measure gauge over such a textured project?
What I did for Dungarvan, was to use the same needles to knit swatches of the various pattern stitches, and measure the gauge for each pattern. Then I put the patterns together to work out the design. Of course, the different cables and textures all have different gauges. My “filler” stitch is seed stitch, which is worked on the outer edges.
I then knitted a stockinette stitch swatch using the same needles and measured that. That’s the gauge measure for the pattern. In the pattern directions, the gauge is x number of stitches and x number of rows equals x number of inches using size x needles in stockinette stitch.
Do you mind keeping it down? I’m trying to sleep here.
