Knit with Aabhar – Snakes & Ladders Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description


Snakes & Ladders Stitch Pattern will bring back your childhood memories of playing the iconic board game. Just as the name suggests, the pattern looks like snakes zigzagging between repeats of ladders. The knitted ‘ladders’ look like the basic garter stitch, while the ‘snakes’ look like the crochet single chain stitch.

The Snakes & Ladders Stitch Pattern is a great choice of pattern where you have to knit large open fabrics such as blankets and throws.
