How to Knit the Seersucker Stitch

How to Knit the Seersucker Stitch- a diamond textured stitch that’s knit entirely with knit and purl stitches. Ideal for beginner knitters!

How to Knit the Seersucker Stitch

The seersucker stitch creates lovely textured stitches and you only need to know how to knit and how to purl to make it.

The seersucker stitch is not a reversible stitch because the right and wrong sides are different. The wrong side still looks neat and attractive, so this stitch could be used for throws and scarves as well as pillows.
