Knit Stitch Patterns

Stitch Pattern Saturday

My Summer project this year is to expand my repertoire of stitch patterns.  I have several stitch pattern books and started with the Tile 1 pattern in the 400 knitting stitches book by Potter Craft.

Here’s the stats on my swatch:

  • This pattern is a 14 stitch repeat.  My swatch is 3 repeats of the pattern along with an edge stitch on each side.
  •  It was done on U.S. Size 7 needles with worsted weight cotton.
  •  It measures approximately 11 inches wide.
  •  I repeated the 12 row stitch pattern 3 times. 
  •  It measures 6 1/2 inches long.

I’ve set up a notebook and I’m going to create a collection of my favorite stitch patterns so that when I’m ready to create, I have a personal reference resource.

This idea came about as a result of my recent class with Knitwear designer Deborah Newton.  She stressed the idea of making swatches just for the fun of it.  She had a whole collection of large, beautiful swatches and I was inspired.
