Knit this pretty textured pattern with triangles!
This triangle knitting stitch pattern looks a bit complicated, but hey it’s just knits and purls, you can totally pull this off!
It may be a bit confusing at the start with all these different rows, I get it. But when you have knitted a repeat you will notice that it’s really not that hard.
After a while, you will be able to determine where you are in your pattern and know what to do next at a glance!
The triangles knitting stitch pattern can be used in a wide range of projects. I have used it for some of the squares in a blanket I’m working on. More about that blanket in a later post!
This texture would also be beautiful in a scarf, shawl, knitted bag or baby blanket. Or maybe on a sweater or slipover made in a thinner yarn. The blanket square I have used for the images is made with super bulky yarn and needles 8mm (US11)

Do you know all the knit abbreviations? I can honestly say that I don’t keep them all in my head at all times… So, instead, I wrote a list of 88 knitting abbreviations to keep in my knitting journal. Of course, I made a printable pdf to share with my readers as well! You find it in this post
