Knit & Purl Stitch Pattern

This stitch has a beautiful texture and is super easy to knit. The trick is to use needles of different size. Use it for scarves, cowls, sweaters or blankets. Any project will look stylish with a stitch like this.

Right Side of the Work
Wrong Side of the Work


Yarn – Knitca Delight 100% extrafine merino wool in Dark Goldenrod colour

Needles – 4 mm (US6) and 10 mm (US15)


With 10mm (US15) cast on an even number of stitches. Add 2 selvage stitches if you want to make a nice-looking edge.

Row 1 (right side) 4mm (US6) needle: [ktbl, p1], repeat brackets to end
Row 2 (wrong side) 10mm (US15) needle: [ktbl, p1], repeat brackets to end

Repeat rows 1-2 as necessary for completing your project.

All abbreviations are explained in the Key to Chart.

You can also work according to the chart below.

Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart) and stitches in wrong side row from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier the number of each row is shown at the beginning of row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side). Ignore this note if you knit in the round and start all your rows from the right of the chart.
