Knitting: Brickwork

Spurred on by my success with the Fleur-de-lys pattern, I’ve been trying out others. This is a very effective one that is ridiculously easy to do. I found this tutorial on YouTube and it’s refreshing in that it doesn’t have an annoying voice and more importantly no annoying music, so that you’re spared the waffle.

Notes:
K means “knit”
P means “purl”
SL means “slip stitch”
WYIF means “with yarn in front”
WYIB means “with yarn in back”
** means repeat the stitches
Colour A is the accent colour
Colour B is the block/brick colour
