Pillared Knot Stitch is a gorgeous two-row repeat pattern that features a column of pretty bobbles separated by faux rib stitches. It does pull in a bit like a rib pattern, but unlike rib knitting patterns, it does not have much elasticity.
This stitch is also popular with the name Indian Pillar stitch in the knitting community. It’s not a reversible knitting pattern, but the wrong side is also decent in appearance. The Pillared Knot Stitch knitting pattern is great for scarves, decorative panels in sweaters or other wearables. You can get a lacy appearance of this pattern if you use a larger pair of knitting needles than the standard.
