L3tbl or Lift Stitch from 3 Rows Below Through the Back Loop (now you know why we abbreviate it) is a uniquely textural stitch used in A Little Lift cowl pattern by Tabetha Hedrick. With a fabric of Garter stitch and the elongated look of a stitch from several rows below, it’s a fun way to play with colour and learn a new skill at the same time. With a little practice, you’ll be able to flow right across the row.
