Granite Stitch Knitting Pattern

The Granite Stitch is a vintage textured pattern that is perfect for blankets, scarves, and knitting fashions. I recently knitted up a men’s necktie in the Granite Stitch and it looks great!

This 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is visually stunning and is easily memorizable for knitting on the go.

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

INSTRUCTIONS TO KNIT THE GRANITE STITCH

Cast On: An even number of stitches and this pattern repeats in four rows.

ROW 1: Knit All Stitches
Starting on the right side of the work, which is the front, the first row is simply knitting all the way across the row.

ROW 2: * K2Tog *
Next, on the wrong side of the work, on the backside, for the second row we decrease with Knit Two Together all the way across the row. This leaves you with half as many stitches on our needles as we originally cast on.

ROW 3: * KFB *
Your third row is on the Right Side of the work and we are increasing each stitch with Knit Front and Back. We now have the original number of stitches back on our needles.

ROW 4: Purl All Stitches
Row four on the wrong side of the work, we finish up by simply Purling all the way across the row.

After knitting these four rows, simply repeat the pattern until your piece is the length you desire.
