This Flag Knit Stitch Pattern has such a beautiful depth of texture. This 6-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is an easy level project, with easy to follow series of knits and purls in six repeating rows. This is also a reversible pattern because it looks great on both the right and wrong sides of your work. The terms Pennant Stitch or Triangle Stitch are also used to describe this Flag Stitch pattern. It’s perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series. What new project will you knit up using this Flag Stitch Pattern?
CLOSER LOOK at the Flag Knit Stitch Pattern
Let’s take a close look at our Flag Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this graphic, simple pattern.
The Flag knit stitch is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical. This makes for a great pattern choice for knitted items that show off both sides of your work, like scarves or blankets.
