This Squared Check Stitch Pattern is a really quick and easy to knit stitch pattern. In fact, it is another Knit and Purl stitch pattern that is super easy to memorise.
And it is really fun to watch the squares materialise as you knit!
Furthermore, not only does the front fabric look impressive, but the reverse is also just as delightful. Even though it is not classified as a reversible pattern, it can easily be mistaken for one.
As a matter of fact, this is a great stitch pattern for knitting projects where both sides are viewed.
This includes knitted accessories such as cowls and scarves. In addition, it will also make a lovely baby blanket or afghan square.
