Loop Stitch Knitting Pattern is a fun textured knitting pattern that is easy to learn and quite beginner friendly. It creates repeats of horizontal loops made by slipping one stitch along with the basic knit and purl stitches. The pattern almost appears like a brick pattern made with a slip stitch. It is also referred to as a Slip Stitch Honeycomb pattern.
The Loop Stitch is an excellent knitting pattern to work in projects such as cowls, as it will create a nice texture on one side with the decorative loops. You can use yarn of any weight and get a beautifully textured fabric.
