How to knit the Granite stitch: Reversible, and it doesn’t curl!

The Granite stitch is one of those patterns we knitters love because it has it all…

First and foremost, I’d like to say that it’s beautiful, like me 😉

Although both sides aren’t identical, they look adorable, so you can choose which one is going to be your “right side”.

Actually, the so-called “wrong side” reminds me of the Grid stitch we learned a while ago (another stunner).

Additionally, the Granite stitch is pretty easy to do; it combines knits and purls only, so it’s totally suitable for both, newbies and veterans 😉

Furthermore, it doesn’t curl, so it’s a great option for blankets, scarves, infinite cowls, but also hats, sweaters, and cardigans. 

Finally, it’s an eight-row repeat pattern, four of which will be repeated: They are plane knit/purl rows.

So, without further ado, grab your needles, a little bit of yarn, and let’s get busy 🙂

CO an odd number of stitches; i.e.: 17 st (the selvage stitches are included).

1º and 5º rows (RS): K across

2º and 6º rows: P across

3º row: K1, *P1, K1*. Repeat from * to *, to last 2 st, P1, K1

4º and 8º rows: Work each st as it presents (purl the purls, and knit the knits)

7º row:  K1, *K1, P1*. Repeat from * to *, t to last 2 st, K1, K1.

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

When finished BO working each stitch as it presents, after a row 7 (WS).
