Trellis pattern

This is a pattern which is easy to knit and can be used in different ways. It uses lifted stitches with the yarn in front which create regular strands of yarn. You can either keep them as horizontal strands and shift the stitches making a “ladder-like” pattern or you can include the strand in a stitch at a later row creating diagonal strands. Trellis

This is my first attempt, the classic Trellis pattern. The same pattern is used in a very classy scarf from PurlSoho: Trellis scarf  They also have a very detailed and easy-to-follow description of how to make it.
