In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit the Double Andalusian stitch pattern (a second version…Olé).
We practiced another version of the Double Andalusian knitting pattern some time ago, very similar to this one, except that the little horizontal ridges are diagonal 😉
And most recently, I shared how to knit the simple Andalusian stitch, another lovely pattern!
What these variations have in common is that all of them look pretty, they are super easy to do, and they combine only knit and purl stitches, which make them ideal for beginners.
Additionally, the Double Andalusian stitch is great for a wide range of projects: From baby stuff, cushions, and placemats, to sweaters and accessories.
However, if you are knitting a scarf or a blanket (a garment that should stay flat), I suggest adding a border or edge on each side of the piece, because it tends to bend, especially on the sides.
Finally, it’s a four-row repeat pattern, three of which are plain knit and purl rows.
Last but not least, the repeat that will be made on each fourth row is super short, so it couldn’t be easier!
You’ll memorize it super quickly, guaranteed 😉
So, enough chatting! Grab your needles and some yarn, and let’s get busy or Vámonos muchachos!
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
BO: Bind off
The odd rows form the right side of the work.
The first and the last stitches are edge stitches.
Double Andalusian stitch knitting pattern
CO multiples of 3 + 1 + 2 (edge); i.e.: 5 * 3 = 15 + 1 = 16 + 2 (edge) = 18 stitches.
1º and 3º rows (RS): K across
2º row: P across
4º row: K1, P1, *K2, P1*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1.
These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished BO knitwise after a row 2 (RS).
This is the other side of the work:
