This beautiful Bamboo Stitch pattern is a personal favorite!
With two simple rows, we create these really pretty rows that look like stalks of bamboo.
This knitting project is an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series.

KNITTING PATTERN for Bamboo Knit Stitch Pattern
Cast On in Multiples of 2
• Row 1: * YO, K2, Pass 1st St Over *
• Row 2: Purl All
Let’s break it down together!
Begin by casting on in multiples of two.
On Row one, begin with a Yarn Over by holding the yarn in the back of your needle, then wrap it around clockwise.
Now, we will knit two stitches.
And bring your needle underneath to pass over the first stitch over your two knit stitches. Then repeat this pattern all the way down the row. Once more time, yarn over, knit two stitches, and pass the first stitch over.
On our second row, we simply purl all the way down the row.
And that’s it! Repeat these two rows to create your Bamboo Stitch pattern.
I hope you are inspired to knit up this Diagonal Basket Weave pattern in your next knitting project.
