This Hurdle Knit Stitch Pattern is a sweet knit and purl combination.  It resembles the hurdles jumped in track class, by horses… or the Olympics! Looking at the Hurdle pattern, it is a small rib variation. It knits up with a thick texture, lies perfectly flat, and is a reversible pattern.

CLOSER LOOK at the Hurdle Knit Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Hurdle Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this pretty, simple pattern.  This 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is a combination of 2 Rows of the Garter Stitch and 2 Rows of the 1×1 Rib Stitch Pattern. It’s also similar to the Irish Moss Stitch, but a more straight down version.

Right and Wrong Sides of the Hurdle Knit Stitch Pattern

This is a reversible pattern, meaning that both sides of your work, the Right and Wrong sides, are identical. I think this Hurdle pattern is perfect for a cozy, reversible scarf. It is on the top of my list for a pillow. This knitting project is an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series. What will you create with your new Hurdle Stitch?
