The Fuchsia Yarnover Stitch Pattern is a popular, traditional stitch pattern.
At first glance, this pattern might look difficult, as it is knitted over 12 rows. However, you will find that it is easy to anticipate the stitches after you have done the first repeat.
In fact, this pattern is an easy pattern to knit, as there is only slightly more involved than just knitting and purling.
So, if you are a confident beginner who would like a challenge, why not try knitting this delightful stitch pattern?
Knitted up in a fine yarn, this stitch pattern is perfect for baby dresses, or a little girl’s party dress.
Furthermore, the pattern has a rather plain reverse side which will look quite nice in projects where both sides are visible. For instance, baby blankets will look lovely in this stitch pattern.
The stitch pattern is such that makes the fabric scrunch up quite a bit. It is therefore more important than ever to properly block any swatches before you take your measurements.
