The Andalusian Stitch

Description

The Andalusian Stitch takes the humble Stockinette Stitch and with just a little tweek of the Knit & Purl creates a subtle, yet beautiful texture.

The stitch itself is very much based on the stockinette pattern, but with every third row of what would typically be knit stitches replaced by a row of ribbing.

This deft change helps break up the uniformness of the plain old stockinette stitch and creates a subtle grid-like texture to the fabric. The great thing about this pattern is that it is still so simple, after a few four-row repeats you will find yourself on autopilot with the garment almost knitting itself.

Ready to get going, then let's head to the instructions...
