12.5 sts x 16 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch


Approx 6.25” x 6” (15.9 cm x 15.2 cm)


The houndstooth stitch pattern uses stockinette stitch so it will curl at the edges as written. Add border stitches in garter or seed stitch or knit in the round to prevent curling.

Chart – This pattern uses a color chart to show the stitch pattern.  Each square on the chart is one stitch. All stitches are knit.

Alternate size – This stitch pattern can be used on any loom with appropriate yarn gauge and a multiple of 4 pegs. 


With A cast on 20 sts.

Foundation Row: K all.

Following chart below work 5 repeats ending on Row 4. 

Ending Row: With A, K all.
