Edelweiss stitch knitting pattern: Easy, reversible, and it doesn’t curl!

The Edelweiss stitch is one of the easiest and most beautiful of the dense knitting stitch patterns that I know. Even cuter than the Easy stitch pattern for Baby clothing we learned a while ago 😉

It’s a reversible stitch (both sides are adorable), and it doesn’t curl. A perfect choice for knitting blankets, scarves, cowls, jumpers, baby clothing…you name it.

Its texture resembles the rare alpine flower called Edelweiss found high up in the Swiss alps…

Four rows create the pattern, and there is just one step to memorize…so let’s get started!

CO multiples of 2 + 1 st; i.e. 2 * 8 = 16 + 1 = 17 st.

1º and 3º rows (RS): K across

2º row: K1, *p2tog, don’t drop it of left needle, k2tog*. Repeat from * to * to the end of the row.

4º row: *p2tog, don’t drop it off the left needle, k2tog*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1.

These four rows create the pattern. Keep knitting until the desired length is reached.

When finished, BO knitwise after a 4º row.
