Easy two-row repeat knit stitch, for scarves and blankets

Today, I’m sharing a lovely two-row repeat knit stitch, great for scarves, blankies, and infinite cowls.

Its design creates embossed columns, with crispy and gorgeous vertical lines.

Not only is it easy to make and memorize, its also reversible (not identical on both sides, but the other side of the work looks gorgeous too).

Additionally, this two-row repeat pattern stays flat all the time, so there’s no need to think about edges 😉

If you’re starting to knit, my suggestion is to get sharp tip needles.

This will make everything easier; the sharp tip helps to get two stitches together, and to purl a stitch through the back loop! 

Believe me, it will save you a lot of time and worry 😉

Finally, this two-row repeat knit stitch is ideal for beginners: If you can knit and purl, you can do it (similar to the Vertical Stripes knit stitch we practiced a while ago).

Moreover, in the video tutorial, you’ll see how to do it in both, English and Continental method.

Then, grab your yarn +  needles, and let’s get started!

st: Stitch

RS: Right side of the work

K: Knit

yo: Yarn over

k2tog: Knit two stitches together

P1tbl: Purl one stitch through the back loop

wyif: With yarn in front

sl1pw: Slip one stitch purlwise

BO: Bind off

WS: Wrong side of the work

CO multiples of 5; i.e.: 5 * 4 = 20 st

1º and every odd row (RS): K1, *K3, yo, k2tog*. Repeat from * to *, to last 4 st, K4

2º and every even row: K4, *wyif sl1pw, P1tbl, K3*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1

This two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finished BO knitwise if you are facing the RS; or purlwise, if you are facing the WS.
