'Twisted Knit Tweed Stitch'

I am currently looking at patterns that use texture and contrasting colours. I have used a twisted knit tweed stitch in this design. Of course, thinking about the colours of a tweed pattern, I have used a light brown and green to reflect the history behind tweed.

It is believed that tweed originates from Scotland, used as farmer's clothing. It is later recognised as a style used for hunting wear for the gentry & royalty.

The stitches used in this pattern are: knit, purl & knit into the stitch below. This knitting into the stitch below, creates the twist in the pattern.
