If you don't fall immediately in love with the checkered design of this Close Check Stitch at first glance, then you need to have yourself another glance. It's almost impossible to believe that such a detailed stitch can be made with just a series of knits and purls, but it's possible. This easy knitting stitch can be used to make stunning placemats for the dining table, adorable coasters for the kitchen, or a nice, tightly-knit baby blanket so your little ones fingers and toes are safe from snagging.

One of my favorite things about knitting is that most of it is just a combination of the knit stitch and the purl stitch. You really only have to know 2 things and find all of the fun and interesting combinations of the two. This looks complicated, but actually doing it is really easy!
