This vintage Andalusian Knit Stitch Pattern is a sweet little design.

This vintage Andalusian Stitch Pattern is a sweet little update of the Stockinette Stitch. In this 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern, we simply knit and purl on one of the rows, creating a little bit of texture and visual interest.  This stitch was named long ago after the Southern Spain community of Andalusia.  I think this classic pattern would be perfect to knit up in one solid color for a darling baby blanket.

CLOSER LOOK at the Andalusian Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Andalusian Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this simple pattern. 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 wouldn’t mind being visible.
