How to Knit the Grass Stitch (stretchy and reversible) + video

Today, I’m sharing how to knit the Grass Stitch, a knit and purl pattern, stretchy, and reversible (identical on both sides).

Another pattern that has everything we knitters love…

Although it’s an eight-row repeat design, the good news is that the first 4 rows are identical, and the other 4 are identical too.

Furthermore, it doesn’t curl (so, there’s no need to block your garments 🙂

The Grass stitch is an adorable pattern not only for scarves, blankets, and sweaters, but also for hats, cowls, and bags.

Honestly, it reminds me of the Rambler Stitch, with the advantage that it’s much much easier to do.

In addition, it will work great on home decor pieces, such as placemats, table runners, rugs, and cushions.

Finally, if you’re just starting to knit, this is the one for you!

Without further ado, grab your needles, and some yarn, and let’s get started.
