Today, you’ll learn how to knit a textured stitch pattern, in just two rows!
Actually, if you can knit and purl, this one is for you; it’s so easy that one of those two rows is a plain purl row 😉
Although this textured stitch is not identical on both sides, to me, it’s a reversible pattern…
Well, both sides of the work look amazing, so you can decide which side you want to be the right side of your project.
It reminds me of the Jute stitch that we practiced a while ago, but the other side of the work has a richer texture to it, it’s gorgeous 🙂
However, if you’re thinking of knitting a scarf, cowl, blanket, or any other garment that should stay flat, don’t forget to add a nice edge on each side of the fabric.
Last but not least, make it prettier by blocking your garment when it’s finished. You’ll get a better definition of the stitches, and a nice shape #ad
Without further ado, grab your needles and some wool or cotton, and let’s knit together!
CO: Cast on
p2tog: Purl two stitches together
RS: Right side of the work
WS: Wrong side of the work
BO: Bind off
The odd rows form the right side of the work
How to knit a textured stitch pattern in two rows
CO multiples of 3; i.e.: 5 * 3 = 15 stitches.
1º and every odd row (RS): K2, *p2tog (don’t drop them) purl the first st, and now take them off, K1*. Repeat from * to *, to end
2º and every even row: P across
These two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished BO purlwise after a row 1 (WS).
This is the other side of the work:
