Sand Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Sand Stitch Knitting Pattern creates punctuated rows of little bumps for an easy texture. This 2-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern is an easy-level project created with a simple combination of knits and purls. It is a great choice for knitting up impressive blankets, pillows, scarves, and more.

This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but the wrong (back) side does not. In fact, the wrong side of this pattern is actually the Broken Rib Stitch texture.

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Sand Stitch Knitting Pattern both the right and wrong sides in blue yarn color.
