Knit 1, Purl 1, Knit 1 in Same Stitch

I recently ran into Knit 1, Purl 1, Knit 1 in the same stitch on a free pattern on Yarnspirations. It was called the Knit Texture Blanket. One of the squares inside of the blanket has this stitch pattern.

The stitch essentially increases 1 stitch into 3. I was confused on how to do all of this in one stitch. So I turned to my knitting mentor on how all of this is possible inside one stitch.

This particular stitch appears with a stitch called Trinity Stitch. It’s a repeating of this stitch combo followed by Purl 3 Together (p3tog). In the tutorial below, I show you how to do only the Knit 1, Purl 1, Knit 1 inside the same stitch.

If you are interested in the Trinity Stitch. Here’s the written instructions for just this stitch combo. If you are going to venture outside of a pattern. Just cast on with an even number onto the needles and this stitch will be possible and stay balanced.

Trinity Stitch

Cast On Even Number

  1. (RS). Purl.
  2. K1. *(K1. P1. K1) all in same st. P3tog. Rep from * to last st. K1.
  3. Purl.
  4. K1. *P3tog. (K1. P1. K1) all in same st. Rep from * to last st. K1. These 4 rows form Trinity Stitch Pat. Repeat starting back at 1 – 4.

    Thank you for your tutorial! I have been practising this stitch since Wednesday, and I think I finally have the hang of it. If I may make a suggestion, the stitch looks nicest to me when I cast on a multiple of four plus two more, for example 22 stitches (20 + 2).
