Knit with Aabhar – Double Rhombus Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description


Double Rhombus Stitch Pattern is a textured knitting pattern that will require some serious knitting skills. The knitting pattern is very similar in appearance to Lattice Cable or Twist Lattice patterns, but unlike those patterns, the embossed cables do not overlap. The two special stitches create the embossed cable effect – 1/1 Right Purl Cross (RPC) and 1/1 Left Purl Cross (LPC).

Double Rhombus Stitch is a non-reversible knitting pattern, and because of its bold appearance, it will work well on large fabrics like blankets and afghans. It’s also a great knitting pattern for making cushions and pillows because of its texture.
