How to Knit the Caterpillar Stitch - Stitchy Saturday

Hello Friends,

Pattern from Studio Knit

What I thought: 
It was an easy stitch that is repetitive and ends up giving a nice texture to the finished knitted piece. I like the caterpillar-like formations made by knit stitches in lines popping out among the purled stitches. I would use this stitch pattern at the bottom of a hat to add texture.  

Knitter level: beginner 
This pattern is simple, repetitive and very easy to follow. I think it would be a fun stitch pattern for a beginner to try as a good way introduce themselves to knitting a pattern.

  1. It looks good on that white yarn. Might make a good stitch for a baby blanket too.
