The Check Stitch pattern is a basic checker pattern that uses small ridges of purl stitches to create a unique texture. The consistent repeating of these ridges in columns and rows gives the finished fabric a geometric pattern. The check stitch is great for simple projects like scarves, hats, and washcloths.
