How to Knit a Super Textured Stitch + video (2 rows)

Today, I’m sharing how to knit a super textured stitch, that’s reversible, and doesn’t curl!

It’s a two-row repeat pattern, and if you can knit and purl, you can do it 😉

Although both sides look different, they look pretty (really textured), so I say it’s a reversible stitch pattern.

Besides, this super textured stitch pattern lays flat no matter what!

So, it’s perfect for a wide range of projects:

It will work not only for scarves and infinite cowls, but also for blankets, hats, and even cardigans or sweaters.

Furthermore, it’s an amazing pattern for dishcloths, placemats, or a table runner.

Finally, in the video tutorial, I’ll show you how to bind off “in pattern” (for symmetry).

Without further ado, grab your needles and some yarn, and let’s get started.


CO: Cast on

st: Stitch

RS: Right side of the work

K: Knit

k2togtbl: Knit two stitches together through the back loop

P: Purl

p1tbl: Purl one stitch through the back loop

BO: Bind off

WS: Wrong side of the work

This swatch was made out of 100% wool yarn (nº 4 or worsted weight) #ad

We’ll start with a setup row, which will be made once (it doesn’t form part of the pattern).

The odd rows form the right side of the work.

There are two selvage (edge) stitches (the first and the last) included; they will be knitted on every odd row and purled on every even row.

CO multiples of 4 + 2 (edge or selvage stitches). For example: 4 * 4 = 16 + 2 = 18 st.

For this swatch, I used the German Twisted cast-on that we practiced last time

Setup row: P1 (edge), K1, *P2, K2*. Repeat to last 4 st, ending with P2, K1, P1 (edge) 

1º and every odd row (RS): K1 (edge), P1, *k2togtbl, drop only the first of them, knit the next, P2*. Repeat to last 4 st, ending with k2togtbl, drop only the first of them, and knit the next, P1, K1 (edge)

2º and every even row: P1 (edge), P1tbl, *P2, P1tbl twice*. Repeat to last 4 st, ending with P2, P1tbl, P1 (edge).

These last rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finished, bind off in pattern after row 2 (RS), as shown in the video.

This is the other side of the work:
