Hazelnut Stitch Pattern is a beautiful pattern that gets its name due to the resemblance of the embossed textured pattern with the hazelnuts. It’s an excellent pattern if you are looking to create a raised texture in your knitting project. The stitches resemble the shape of hazelnut in form of embossed knots. This free knitting pattern is also known as the Cobnut pattern amongst the community.
Although it is a simple and straightforward pattern, it involves some tricky stitches. The lower end of the nut gets its shape from increasing into the same stitch twice (a double increase). And then, combining three stitches into one, a few rows later results in shaping the top end of the nut.
The Hazelnut Stitch Pattern is perfect for making textured sweaters, pullovers, cardigans, or even blankets.
