Knitting Stitch Patterns

Knitting Stitch Patterns, or combinations of knitting stitches, are a wonderful way to expand your knitting skills. There are hundreds of ways to combine just knits and purls to form different designs. They have been in use since people first began to knit. All knitting uses stitch patterns...even stockinette is considered to be stitch pattern.

So instead of knitting a sweater you can use a different stitch pattern instead, keeping in mind the stitch multiples needed for each pattern stitch. A multiple of 5 stitches means you should cast on any number of stitches that is divisible by 5. A multiple of 6 + 1 means you should cast on any number of stitches that is divisible by 6 plus 1 extra stitch.

Reversible stitch patterns look identical on both sides or sometimes one side is the opposite of the other. Because there is no wrong side, they are useful for projects where the wrong and ride side will show such as scarves, afghans and dish cloths.

See Knitting Abbreviations and the Glossary Of Knitting Terms for more help.

Also see the database of information on Barbara Walker's stitch pattern books. Both a text file and a spreadsheet are available. They include the stitch name, the number of stitches and rows required for the pattern, and other information.
