This is the first pattern in the Knitted Kitchen Blog Hop: Learn A New Stitch Dishcloth Series 2017. You can find all the information you’ll need to follow along, as well as regularly updated links to each of the 48 knitting patterns with photo or video tutorials, here.
This post contains affiliate links. Materials for the sample were generously provided by Lion Brand and Denise.
The Double Andalusian Stitch is a beginner-friendly pattern so I thought it would be the perfect one to start off the blog hop with! (It’s also great for “mindless” knitting – I made the sample while watching a particularly nail-biting episode of Vikings.) It makes a delightful texture. You can find a complete video tutorial at the end of the pattern.
