Creel Stitch is a knitting stitch developed by Marie Greene of Olive Knits.

This basket weave-inspired stitch is named for a creel (a basket designed to hold fish). The woven stitch pattern even slightly resembles fish bones. The stitch pattern was designed as a way to create repetitive texture with two colors, without the traditional methods of using slipped stitches or colorwork. The process is simple and the results are dramatic! With so many uses and variations, you'll fall in love with Creel Stitch for your next project.
