Purl Ridge Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

Purl Ridge Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Purl Ridge Stitch Knitting Pattern is a Stockinette background textured by a horizontal row of raised purl seed stitches. This 4-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is an easily memorizable combination of knits and purls. It’s a great choice for knitting up pillows with a little pop of texture.

Please continue reading to get all your materials, techniques, and free written pattern instructions to knit this pattern both flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles. This pattern is also found on page 23 of my Knit Stitch Pattern Book.

CLOSER LOOK at the Purl Ridge Stitch Pattern

Let’s take a close look at our Purl Ridge Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are knitted together to make this sweet, vintage pattern. The Stockinette background is designed with a thin ridge of purl stitches along each fourth row for texture. This is not a reversible pattern because your right side of the work displays the design, while the wrong (back) side does not.
