Pyramid Stitch Chart

Pyramid Stitch

This Pyramid Stitch pattern is written for needle, loom and circular knitting. Please read all notes. Omit column 1 for circular knitting. The pyramid stitch pattern is a multiple of 8 +1 and a 16-row repeat. Chart and rows written using 24 stitches wide (3 stitch repeats) + 1 and 32 rows (2-row repeats). Pattern is written for a main stitch pattern and may or may not require a border depending on the item being made. For an item requiring a border, allow cast on and border of your choice in style and width plus bind off.

[For a garter stitch border allow minimum 8 extra stitches, 4 on left and 4 on right, and 6-8 rows on each end for garter stitch rows; for example if on a blanket. To make a hat, a 1×1 ribbing would look nice with the pyramid stitch pattern.]

Submit a swatch sample photo(s) to contribute@goodknitkisses.com and be featured with a photo and credit on this page here at goodknitkisses.com!

Requirements (submit the following via email):

1. Name (Full, partial and/or Ravelry handle or name).

2. Knitting tool (needle size or specific loom with brand and description; Any loom maybe used: long loom, round/circular loom, single rake, or knitting board type).

3. Measure 4×4 or 1 full stitch pattern repeat. if you have never measured a gauge swatch, wash your sample and lay flat to dry, you can pin to block while wet. After it is dry, measure towards the center of your swatch or project so it is at least 1-2 inches from the edge before measuring for accuracy. **If you don’t have time to block before measuring please write UNBLOCKED.** Thanks!

This information will help others as a reference and all submission gauges will be noted on this page.

Needles:

Knit

Loom:

Knit (use U-Knit or True Knit/Reverse purl) – note: E-wrap can be used but will create a stretchier Y shaped stitch that is twisted and larger than a smoth V shaped Knit stitch. Your fabric will be stretchier, larger and more bumpy than a U or regular knit.

I hope you enjoy the pyramid stitch!  This would be a really nice cowl, sweater, scarf or beanie design I think! I love all the triangles in the pyramid stitch, don’t you?! Please consider helping others and this Resource site but submitting your project photo and gauge info and you will be featured, too. -Kristen
