The Knit-Purl Step Stitch with FREE Pattern! – Yarn|Hook|Needles

Posted on Posted in Free Patterns


Today’s Knitting Stitch is a simple combination of knits and purls. You will love how easily this works up! No counting required! Plus, I’m going to be sharing with you very soon a baby blanket pattern from this exact stitch!

If we aren’t already friends on Ravelry, head over and check out my profile. I’m looking to review/complete a lot of the projects on there throughout the 2017 year. I am hoping to add pdf versions of all of my patterns on there too for only $1.25!

While all my personal patterns are offered for free on my site, sometimes it’s easier to get your hands on a printable, ad-free version!

Now on to the stitch pattern!


  • size 13 needles
  • chunky (5) yarn


Cast on as many stitches as you need for your project

Using a 4-row repeat continue with the following…

R1 – Knit

R2 – Purl

R3 – Knit

R4 – Knit

Work these 4 rows for as long as your work requires.



– baby blanket

– giant knit blanket if using roving

– slouchy cowl

– a slouchy hat worked in the round



There are a ton of different creative options you could make! Even a sweater would be beautiful if you understood how to design knitted garments. I’m not at that level of pattern design but I hope to be some day!

Until next time…
