Caterpillar Stitch on a Knitting Loom

Caterpillar Stitch Free Pattern and Video

Caterpillar Stitch on Loom

The caterpillar stitch is AN easy to do, knit and purl combination stitch. The bumpy caterpillar makes it great for a washcloth or dishcloth project. Hope you guys like this one as much as I do.

I always try to give a video for all my patterns, even the really easy ones. In this case it is only for the flat version. The round version of the pattern is in the printable PDF.
