Knit Stitch Patterns

Knit Stitch Pattern Saturday

Welcome to 2017 and another Saturday of knitting stitch swatches.  I started this last year as a way to challenge myself to become acquainted with different stitch patterns.  I continue to be inspired by the simple patterns and this week is no different.  I returned to Reversible Knitting Stitches.  There are so many fascinating patterns in this book.  I have 5 or 6 stitch dictionaries and continue to look for more.  If you know of any, please let me know.

This is called Quaker Ridge and I love it.

This simple combination of knit rows and purl rows creates a wonderful texture.  This is 3 repeats of the 12 row pattern.  The first 12 rows are done in one color and then I decided to knit the stockinette section in the blue.

This swatch is knit on U.S. Size 7 needles using worsted weight yarn.  I cast on 25 stitches making the swatch about 6 inches wide.  The 12 rows is about 1 and a 1/2  inches long.

This is an ideal pattern for so many projects.  I’m going to start with a dishcloth, possibly a pillow, and then even a baby blanket.  Depending on the yarn and the color combination, I think it will knit up into a terrific project.
