Purl Ridge Stitch Knitting Pattern

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.

Enjoy this easy level project and perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series. Continue reading to get the written pattern instructions to knit it up on flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles.

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.
