Bamboo Stitch Knitting Pattern: Easy 2-Row Repeat

This beautiful Bamboo Stitch Knitting Pattern is a personal favorite!

With a simple 2-Row Repeat, we create these really pretty rows that look like stalks of bamboo. This stitch is easy to memorize and requires basic knitting stitches, along with a few yarn overs.

Keep scrolling to get all the materials, techniques, and free written pattern instructions to knit this pattern both flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles below.

This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the bamboo design, but the wrong (back) side does not.
