Double Andalusian knitting stitch pattern: Easy peasy, it doesn’t curl, ideal for beginners

In today’s tutorial, I’ll teach you how to knit the Double Andalusian stitch, a lovely four-row pattern great for beginners, easy and quick to memorize (two of the four rows are just plain knit rows).

If you are just starting to knit, give it a try, the only techniques required are knitting and purling ;). It’s similar to the Little Boxes stitch we learned some time ago, but much easier!

The Double Andalusian pattern is perfect for knitting blankets, baby clothing, scarves, cowls and sweaters or cardigans. It’s not reversible, yet it has a delicate texture to it, and it doesn’t curl.

Olé! Let’s get started!


CO: Cast on

RS: Right side of the work

How to knit the Double Andalusian stitch: A four-row repeat pattern that doesn't curl. So Woolly.


The first and the last stitch are selvedge stitches, and they will be knitted on each row.

The odd rows form the right side of the work.

CO multiples of 6 + 2 + 2; i.e.: 6 * 3 = 18 + 2 = 20 + 2 (selvedge stitches) = 22 stitches.

1º and 3º rows (RS): K across

2º row: K1, K2, *P4, K2*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1

4º row: K1, P2, *P1, K2, P3*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1.

These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached. When finished, BO purlwise after a row 4.
