Knit Anemone Stitch Tutorial

Updated: Apr 19, 2019

Today's Stitch tutorial is on the Anemone Stitch. I used this stitch in the Anemone Slouch Beanie (available for purchase in shops).

When I first saw this stich, I wanted to learn it but I was still starting out and the instructions didn't make sense to me and was confusing. So I forgot about it and recently picked up the same stitch book and saw it again. Funny how all of a sudden it made more sense! It was still confusing (the way it was written) but I was able to figure it out. So, never give up... keep practicing and you will improve in reading patterns (if you are intimidated by it)!

Please visit any of my shops if you would like to purchase the ad-free PDF Beanie pattern in a convenient tri-fold format for on-the-go Knitting. PDF Pattern comes in sizes Baby (Toddler, Child, Adult).
