How to knit the Tiles stitch: Reversible and it lays flat!

The Tiles stitch is an adorable knitting pattern, that shares the DNA of the Thermal stitch we practiced a couple of weeks ago.

Honestly, it’s a great option for beginners 🙂


First of all, it combines knit + purl stitches; there is no need to increase or decrease.

Secondly, it doesn’t curl. It’s one of those stitches that lay flat no matter what 😉 

From time to time it’s refreshing to have options when we don’t want to think about adding edges or blocking… 

In fact, with this kind of pattern, you can start knitting, bind off, and wear your garment straight away!

Furthermore, it’s identical on both sides, so you can knit scarves, blankets, infinite cowls… you name it!

Finally, the Tiles stitch involves four rows which are exactly the same, and four plain knit rows…it couldn’t be easier 😉

So grab your needles, a bit of yarn, and let’s get started!
