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.
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
BO: Bind off

CO an odd number of stitches.
1º row: *K1, P1*. Repeat from * to *, until last st, K1.
2º and 4º rows (RS): K across
3º row: *P1, K1*. Repeat from * to *, until last st, P1.
These four rows form the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO knitwise, after a row 3.
The Sand stitch is not reversible. This is the other side of the work:
