Long Raindrops Stitch Knitting Pattern πŸ’– Knit and Purl Stitches


The long raindrops knit stitch pattern. Hi I’m Kristen and welcome back to my channel Studio Knit. The long raindrops knit stitch pattern this is another easy one
it creates a reversible pattern of these elongated vertical lines that resemble a
rainy downpour this pattern is created by knitting rows of alternating 1×1 rib
stitch pattern this is an easy level pattern it’s perfect for beginners
because it uses only knits and pearls this 8 row repeat knit stitch pattern I
think would be perfect to knit up a cozy oversized cowl or scarf and if you’re
excited to knit this pattern up do me a favor like up this video it really helps
me out so the written pattern is available in my new knit stitch pattern
book it has 50 knit and purl patterns so I have it both in a printed version as
well as an easy download that’s a digital it’s an e-book this pattern is
located right here on page 34 of both the hardcopy book and the digital ebook
and you can see that we have a both flat and in the round written instructions
along with the visual knitting chart and right here on the photo you can see this
little symbol right here that indicates that it is a reversible pattern it looks
great both on the right and the wrong sides of your work the written pattern
is also available totally for free directly on my website I will have all
the links you need to know in the description below so you just scroll to
the bottom of the long raindrop stitch page and there you’ll find something
called a card and you can hit print and you can immediately print the written
instructions and curl up on the couch and enjoy
this pattern and so for our materials you can use any yarn and
appropriately-sized knitting needles that you would like you’ll also want to
have some little scissors and a tapestry needle on hand so let’s knit it up to
begin we are casting on in multiples of two those two stitches as long as you’d
like onto your needle I am doing 30 that is multiples of two onto mine for this
example here today and let’s jump right into Row one so it is K 1 P 1 that means
knit 1 so this very first stitch is a knit stitch and then P 1 is purl so
we’re bringing our yarn to the front we are purling one stitch and between
the asterisks that means we just keep repeating this exact pattern all the way
down the row so again you will be doing a knit stitch just knitting line and
then bringing that your back to the front or up to the front I should say go
ahead and purl it one time bring your yarn to the back and continue this
pattern all the way down the row and look at that it is exactly the same as
Row 1 it is K 1 P 1 so we are knitting one stitch we are purling one stitch and
we are repeating this pattern all the way down the row and here is how it’s
looking so far it’s really just a one by one rib stitch pattern right now and Row
three again it is K 1 P 1 we are knitting 1 we are purling 1 and we are
doing this all the way down the row and you guessed it Row 4 exactly the same K
1 P 1 knit 1 purl 1 have fun doing this same pattern all the way down the row
this is such an easy pattern to memorize even though it’s 8 entire
rows that we’re repeating very very easy to memorize and not have to refer to the
written pattern once you have it down so let’s look at how we are going to switch
things up now on Row 5 we’re beginning with purling P 1 K 1 so you want to make
sure you have that yarn in the front of your needle because we’re beginning with
a purl stitch and we are purling right here stitch number one and bringing the
yarn to the back so that we can knit one stitch and because we have those
asterisks right there it means that we are repeating this pattern all the way
down the row P 1 K 1 is purling 1 and knitting 1 now a bat you are suspicious
and yes row 6 is exactly the same you are purling 1 you are knitting 1 you’re
beginning with that purl stitch in the beginning which can be a little bit
tricky and you can see my ear intention is a little wonky here but I’m also
trying to know on camera which I must admit is not that easy because I have my
needles and my hands much farther away from my body that I’m used to right so
let’s look at how row 7 is going to switch things up nope it’s exactly the
same it is P 1 K 1 we’re again beginning with that purl stitch
so we’re purling 1 bringing the yarn to the back knitting 1 repeating it all the
way down the row and let’s just fast forward here and get to row 8 where we
are doing the exact same pattern we can see how our piece is shaping up and how
those alternating rows of the 1×1 rib stitch make a really unique yummy cozy
pattern and because it’s alternating it’s allowing the piece to lie flat
unlike the one by one rib stitch pattern this lies a lot flatter and when
I repeat these eight rows and knit it up a little bit bigger you can see exactly
how those alternating rows turn out it is a really sweet pattern this sample
right here I did do a little bit of light blocking so it sort of allows
those rows to stand out a little bit more and not be so bunched together I
hope you enjoyed learning how to knit up this very easy long raindrop spin stitch
pattern I’d love it if you would go check out my new knit stitch pattern
book both in print as well as the e-book and you can go grab that free pattern
down on my website right now as well thanks so much for watching guys and I
will see you next time. BYE!
