Little Raindrops Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Little Raindrops Stitch Knitting Pattern creates a reversible pattern of small vertical lines. This 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is perfect to knit up a lightweight textured blanket in this simple combination of knits and purls.

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