Identifying these stitches

Hello fellow knitters! There are a couple of stitch patterns that I can’t seem to identify, and I was hoping to maybe get some assistance from somebody that might be able to figure it out.

The stitches that I’m trying to figure out are whatever was used for the top portions of these two different sets of fingerless gloves:

I thought this one looked like crochet, but I don’t know for sure.

This one doesn’t quite look like a seed stitch, but somewhat similar in texture.

Any assistance would be wonderful! Thanks in advance!


The first set looks like it was crocheted to me. The bottom set looks like a stitch called the trinity or bramble stitch was used.

the blue first ones you could probably get really close with a double moss stitch ( or a box stitch ( or even a small-scale raspberry stitch (

the brown second ones look more like estonian button ( or even reverse chevron (, but it’s a little tough to tell with the variegated yarn.

hope that at least gives you some starting points. :wink:

Thank you for the help! The suggested stitch patterns look pretty close to what I was looking for! :slight_smile: I do think the first one is probably crochet.

Thanks again for the advice!
