Stitchy Saturday Seersucker Stitch

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all doing well. I tried the Seersucker stitch this week. It is a simpler stitch and consists of knitting and purling and includes repetition of rows, which makes it easier.  In the end you have diamond shapes in your knitting which would be a nice detail on hats, scarves, and blankets.

What stitch:

This week I tried the Seersucker Stitch



Pattern:
Cast on multiples of 4
Rows 1 and 2: K1, P1, K1, P1 
Row 3: P1, K3
Row 4: P3, K1
Rows 5  and 6: K1, P1, K1, P1 
Row 7: K2, P1, K1 
R01 8: P1, K1, P2
Repeat rows  1-8


What I thought: 
I like the pattern because it is simple and easy to follow. I like the way the stitch pattern looks like rows of diamonds when finishing the 8 rows. I would use this stitch to add texture to scarves, hats, blankets.

Knitter level: 
Beginner:  It is a simple pattern and I think this one would be perfect for new knitters because it is only using knitting and purling and not too challenging, but still fun when you see the result!
