The Andalusian Stitch
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...
Cast on multiples of two stitches for your project.
