How to knit the Andalusian Lattice (4 rows only!)

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit a pretty stitch, called the Andalusian Lattice, similar to the Drizzle stitch we practiced a while ago.

It’s a four-row repeat pattern, full of advantages:

First of all, it’s easy and fun to knit. If you can knit and purl, you can do it!

Second, it doesn’t curl, so it’s ideal for scarves, cowls, blankets, and any other garment that should stay flat.

Third, it has a lovely texture to it, and the design is small, so it will also look great in accessories, such as hats, socks, gloves, mittens, etc.

Moreover, it’s a reversible pattern, because both sides look different, yet they are adorable.

So, my little Woolly, let’s knit something pretty 🙂

Needles, yarn… action!


CO: Cast on

st: Stitch

RS: Right side of the work

K: Knit

P: Purl

k2tog: Knit two stitches together

K1bo: Knit one stitch inserting the needle into the stitch from the row below

BO: Bind off

WS: Wrong side of the work


We’ll start with a setup row (row “0”). This row will be made just once.

The even rows form the right side of the work.

The edge (selvage) stitches (the first and the last) are included in the stitch count and will be knitted on every row.

This swatch was made out of 100% cotton yarn  (smooth and it comes in lovely colors)#ad
