Seersucker Stitch Knitting Pattern

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. This pattern is an easy level project and perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series. Receive all the materials, techniques, and written pattern instructions to knit this pattern both flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles.

CLOSER LOOK at the Seersucker Stitch Pattern

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.

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.
