Window Stitch Knitting Pattern for Beginners

The Window Stitch Knitting Pattern creates little blocks of textured squares separated by vertical lines with just knit and purl knitting techniques.

This 14-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern in 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.
