How to knit a textured stitch pattern in just two rows

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 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:
