This vintage Andalusian Stitch Knitting Pattern is a sweet little update of the Stockinette Stitch.
In this 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern, we create a little bit of texture and visual interest with a simple combination of knits and purls.
This stitch was named long ago after the Southern Spain community of Andalusia. This classic pattern is perfect to knit up in one solid color for a darling baby blanket.

As you can see, this Andalusian is NOT a reversible pattern, since the Right and Wrong Sides are different. However, the wrong side has a nice clean look that I personally wouldn’t mind being visible.
Feel free to use any size yarn and needles for your creative project.
