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.
