Knit with Aabhar – Pyramid Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description


Pyramid Stitch is a unique cable knitting pattern that creates repeating and stacked motifs of stockinette pyramids. The pyramid motifs are subtle over a textured background with inverted garter stitch pyramids. The raised edge effect is created by two special cable stitches, Right Twist (RT) and Left Twist (LT). These are also called the 1/1 Right Cross, and 1/1 Left Cross stitches, respectively which are basically 1 over 1 cable stitches.

Pyramid Stitch Knitting Pattern is perfect for knitting men’s pullovers as it gives a nice texture to the overall knitted fabric.

Special stitches:

  1. Insert the right needle into the front of the second stitch on the left needle and slip it, letting the first stitch drop off the needle towards the back of your work.
  2. Pick up the dropped stitch with the left needle, then transfer the slipped stitch back to the left needle. (The stitches are now twisted.)
  3. Knit these two stitches one by one through back loop.
