Andalusian Stitch 
Simple Pretty Stitch Pattern

The Andalusian stitch pattern is very pretty and simple to knit. It creates a nice texture and is still simple enough to use instead of say a plain stockinette stitch pattern.

It adds a little eye candy instead of plain knitting.

This stitch pattern uses easy knit and purl stitches so it's a great pattern for beginning knitters. It's basically a stockinette stitch pattern with one row of ribbing (knit one, purl one) that changes the look to a kind of grid pattern.

You will also find that it knits up pretty quickly because once you have worked the pattern a couple of times you will have it memorized. 

You can use this knitting stitch pattern in practically anything. Spice up a plain stocking stitch sweater or use it for mittens, hats, socks and well just about anything.

Have any ideas? Give them a try.

Double Andalusian 

You can give the double Andalusian stitch pattern a try. Since there are a few pattern variations on this stitch pattern I decided to whip up another swatch so you can see another version.

This knitting stitch pattern is still really simple to knit up as well and it's really pretty too. Try making a scarf with it or anything you like. It is really simple and will perk up any plain knitting that you are working on.
