Materials List

  • Two different colored yarns
  • Circular knitting needles (or double pointed knitting needles)


Cast on a multiple of 10 plus 2 (in this example, we're using a multiple of 5 plus 2, which also works).

To Work the Woven Plaid

  1. Work up to the point where you will place your square of woven stitches.

  2. Row 1: (Color A) S1wyib, s1wyif, s1wyib, s1wyif, s1wyib

    For the sections of this row that don't have woven stitches, simply purl with color A.

    When you reach the end of your row, you will not turn your work. Instead, you will simply slide your stitches to the other side of your circular needles or DPNs.

  3. Row 2: (Color A) K1, p5, s5wyib, k1


  4. Row 3: (Color B) K6, s1wyib, s1wyif, s1wyib, s1wyif, s1wyib, k1

    Slide your stitches to the other side of your needles.

  5. Row 4: (Color B) K1, s5wyib, k6


  6. Rows 5-8: Repeat rows 1-4

  7. Repeat these rows, switching the colors every 8 rows to create the plaid effect!

This is such an interesting pattern! I'm not sure which colors I'd choose. Maybe green and grey?
