How to Knit Double Fleck Stitch [Free Video Tutorial & Written Pattern!]

Double Fleck Stitch is a short, simple, 4 Row Repeat consisting of only knit and purl stitches that create little flecks of staggered texture on the front of your work.

Double Fleck Stitch is similar in texture to Andalusian, and Double Andalusian Stitch but stands out as the little seed stitches are staggered rather than sitting on top of each other.

Double Fleck Stitch would work wonderfully in any number of projects, either on its own as a dishcloth (maybe with a simple garter stitch border?) or as a Scarf or Cowl. I used a similar technique in my recent Taylor Baby Blanket, but now that I've discovered double fleck stitch, I'll definitely be incorporating it into a future blanket design.

written pattern

Pattern Multiple - Cast on a multiple of 6+4 using your preferred cast on method.

Pattern Repeat:

Row 1 (RS): k all stitches.

Row 2(WS): p4, *k2, p4* repeat from *to* until end of Row.

Row 3: k all stitches

Row 4: p1, k2, *p4, k2* repeat from *to* until 1 stitch remains, p1.

Repeat rows 1-4 until project is desired length.

When you want to cast off, do so on wrong side row, and cast off in pattern. Doing this will keep your pattern symmetrical with a matching row of purl bumps top and bottom.
