Knitting Stitches – How to knit embossed check stitch

In the series of Knitting Stitches, we are going to be learning just how to knit embossed check stitch.

This embossed stitch is a pattern that will add texture (and color) to any item.  Because some stitches are knit and purl into the back of the loops it creates a twisted rib effect.

The stitch is fairly stretchy and a perfect substitute for the normal k1p1-ribbing?!

K       - knit

KB1    - knit in the back loop of the stitch

Explaining K1B:

KB1 is the abbreviation for:  knit one in the; back loop of the stitch

Insert one needle (right needle) into the back loop of the stitch on the left needle (Knit Stitch).

Wind the yarn over the right hand needle.

Draw the right needle and yarn through the stitch and transfer the loop onto the right needle.

PB1 - Will be the same as above, just by purling the stitch in the back loop of the stitch (yarn will be in the front when you purl).
