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 is an easy level project that 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. Please continue reading to get all your materials, techniques, and free written pattern instructions to knit this pattern both flat on straight needles and in the round on circular needles. Find this pattern on page 59-60 of my Knit Stitch Pattern Book
