purls that you are going to be able to knit right now let’s first take a look
at the two knit stitch patterns you’ve already been creating when you are
knitting every row in your knitting swatch you are creating the most basic
knit stitch pattern the Garter stitch when you are knitting one row and then
purling the next you are creating the stockinette knit stitch pattern I’m
going to share some of my favorite beginning knit stitch patterns that
require just these two techniques knitting and purling I’ll have links to
the video tutorials and written pattern instructions in the description below
here is the one by one rib stitch pattern and the thicker 2×2 rib stitch
pattern the reverse rib stitch pattern has a stretchy rib pattern and it’s
horizontally rather than vertically if you’re enjoying learning about knit
stitch patterns to be a favor like up this video it really helps me out and
here are two really popular knit and purl stitch patterns the seed stitch it
creates a really pretty and sturdy piece of
knitting the Irish moss stitch also called the American moss stitch it’s
similar to the seed stitch but it has a thicker texture the basket weave is
really impressive it looks like your pattern is actually woven like a basket
but it’s really just a combination of knit and purl stitches row after row the
waffle stitch it also has a really fun texture and syrup is optional a couple
more fun ones are the caterpillar stitch because the raised purl stitches make it
look like a little caterpillar shape here and the chevron stitch is really
cool you can see the zigzag pattern from those raised purl stitches make sure to
