The Rosette Stitch is an easy classic knitting stitch that creates a lovely firm fabric with a fancy texture. This is a great stitch for jackets, coats and any other warm fabric that calls for a denser stitch.
A view of the Rosette Stitch on the right side of the work. Really loving this unique texture, it has a very distinct look that resembles crochet.
Here is a view of the back of the work for the Rosette Stitch, it is not a reversible knit stitch however the back of the work produces quite a nice texture too!
Materials I used: The yarn I used for this sample I bought online from an Australian company called Bendigo Woolen Mills, the shade is a self striping 2 toned rainbow called Bloom Rust. I used a size 5mm knitting needles.
