Knitting Stitch Patterns in Stockinette Stitch: 17 Freebies

There's a reason knitting is so addictive — even beginners can make professional looking fabrics just by knowing a few basic steps.  After mastering how to knit and how to purl, simply alternate these stitches to create a wide variety of fabrics that are both smooth and rich with texture.  While we've already compiled round ups of our favorite seed stitch knitting patterns and garter stitch patterns, today we're focusing on an equally enticing stitch: the stockinette stitch.  With this group of 17 knitting stitch patterns in stockinette stitch, you'll discover patterns for all sorts of simple projects that will stock up your wardrobe and your home.

If the stockinette stitch sounds intimidating to you, don't be fooled.  For straight knitting (that's knitting with straight needles and turning your work after each row) you simply knit one row then purl the next one.  Keep this up and before you know it, a smooth piece of fabric covered with rows of v shapes will appear.  And don't think completing this stitch is any more complicated if you're knitting in the round.  If you're using circular needles, all you have to do is keep making the knit stitch.  Couldn't be easier, right?   Now that we've removed any fear and doubt, let's dive into this this great collection.  When you knit yourself a pair of brightly colored socks or make a new knit bag for all the Farmer's markets in the summer time, you'll unveil a variety of patterns that are both pretty and practical.
