Bumpy stitch: Reversible, for knitting edges that don’t curl

In today’s tutorial, you’ll learn a reversible stitch, identical on both sides; the Bumpy stitch. Perfect for knitting scarves, blankets, and cowls.

It’s also an option for knitting edges that don’t curl…Normally, when we knit a scarf, a rectangular shawl or a blanket, and we want to make an edge, I don’t know why but we always seem to end up making the Seed, Moss or Garter stitch.

The Bumpy stitch is a lovely alternative if we want to knit something not so common. I like it also for knitting the hem and cuffs of a jacket (Chanel style).

It’s anything but complicated: There are no increases nor decreases. The pattern is made out of knits and purls; an adorable basic stitch, ideal for beginners.


CO: Cast on

K: Knit

P: Purl

BO: Bind off

Textured reversible stitch for knitting scarves, cowls and blankets (it doesn't roll up). So Woolly.

Bumpy stitch

CO an odd number of st.

1º and 3º rows: *P1, K1*. Repeat from * to *, ending with P1.

2º row: K1, *P1, K1*. Repeat from * to *, to the end.

4º row: P1, *K1, P1*. Repeat from * to *, to the end.

These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached. When finished, BO in pattern (work every stitch as it presents).

This is the other side of the work:
