This vintage Brick Stitch Pattern is an easy stranded colorwork knitting piece that uses two yarn colors of your choice. The white in my example looks like cement in garter stitch holding together my pretty pink bricks in stockinette stitch.
With a pattern of knit and purl techniques, plus a simple slip stitch, you can create this visually stunning modern Brick stitch pattern. This texture also looks like subway tiles and is perfect to knit up a cozy pillow or fun holiday-themed decor.
