How to knit the Sand stitch pattern: Super easy and it doesn’t curl

Today you’ll learn how to knit an adorable pattern: The Sand stitch; ideal for beginners because it’s super easy, yet full of texture, and it doesn’t curl.

The Sand stitch is a lovely option for knitting baby clothing, as well as cowls, sweaters and blankets.

It’s everything but complicated: Only four rows, and two of them are knit rows; it shares the same DNA as the Seed stitch, but I think it’s easier, if you are just starting to knit.
