Brick Stitch Knitting Pattern

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.

Let’s take a close look at our Brick Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls and simple slip stitch make up this colorful, interwoven pattern.

Right and Wrong Sides

This is not a reversible pattern, meaning the Wrong side looks different than the featured front Right side pattern design of the Brick Stitch.

My sample was created with size 7 US knitting needles and bulky weight wool yarn. Feel free to use any weight yarn and appropriately sized knitting needles for your creative project.
