Seersucker Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Seersucker Stitch Knitting Pattern creates textured rows of puckered diamond shapes edged with stockinette ridges.

This 8-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern looks like a complex raised pillowy design, but it achieved with just a simple combination of knits and purls.

CLOSER LOOK at the Seersucker Stitch

The Seersucker Stitch is not a reversible pattern, because the Right and Wrong Sides are different. Although, the wrong side has a nice clean look still looks nice when visible.

The word “seersucker” came into English from Hindi, and originates from the Persian words literally meaning “milk and sugar.” As a result, the seersucker fashion fabric is woven with some threads bunching together, giving the fabric a slightly wrinkled appearance.
