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: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
WS: Wrong side of the work
Granite stitch knitting pattern
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).
This is the other side of the work:
