This video knitting tutorial will help you learn how to knit the box stitch. This pattern is similar to the seed stitch since it alternates knits and purls but in a 2×2 pattern rather than 1×1. The result is a checkered texture that is great for washcloths, pillows, and scarves.

Skill: Easy

Cast On: Multiples of 4 + 2

For this pattern you will need to know the following techniques:

Knit – k

Row 4: Rep row 1

Repeat rows 1 – 4 until you have reached your desired length.
