Grid Stitch



This stitch pattern is short and sweet, and produces a nice textured fabric.

The edges are pretty sloppy, so I recommend adding an extra stitch (at the minimum) on each side to neaten it up.  Personally, I would add a seed stitch border, about 3-4 stitches on each side in addition to a few seed stitch rows at the top and bottom, which is my go-to method of preventing sloppy edges.  Depends on your taste and what you plan to use the stitch for, of course!

Cast on a multiple of 2 +1

Row 1: K1, P1 across row
Row 2: Work each stitch as it appears - knit the knits, purl the purls
Rows 3 and 4: Knit all stitches

Repeat these 4 Rows for pattern

Here is the video.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!
