What you need to know

Combine smooth stocking stitch with the soft ridges of garter stitch in this subtly tactile pattern. We’ve upped the ante with a two-colour sequence too. You can carry the stripe shade up the side of the work so you don’t need to cut it, but twist the strands on every alternate row to prevent large loops.

Stocking stitch alternates a row of knit stitches with a row of purl stitches. This creates a knitted fabric that is smooth on the right side (with purl stitches forming the bumpy wrong side).
