In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit the famous “One-row” reversible knitting stitch pattern, which we learned using straight needles sometime ago; this time, it’s all about how to do it in the round!
The One-row reversible pattern is one of my most-watched video tutorials, and there were many requests to see exactly how easy it is to work it with circulars.
It’s a lovely stitch, it has a nice texture to it, and it doesn’t curl; this is why knitted flat, it’s the perfect option to knit scarves and blankets. Additionally, it’s reversible and identical on both sides.
After giving it a little thought and time, I found out that one of the differences when knitting it in the round, is that there will be two rounds (instead of one row when knitted back and forth). These two rounds make it exactly as the original pattern.
So, let’s get started ;D
CO: Cast on
k1tbl: Knit one stitch through the back loop
p1tbl: Purl one stitch through the back loop
BO: Bind off
“One-row” reversible knitting stitch
pattern in the round
CO multiples of 4; i.e.: 4 * 4 = 16 stitches.
1º round: *K3, P1*. Repeat from * to *, to the end of the round.
2º round: *P2, K1tbl, P1tbl*. Repeat from * to *, to the end of the round.
These two rounds create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached. When finished, BO after a round 2, working each stitch as it presents.
