Brick Stitch Knitting Pattern

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. I think it also looks like subway tiles. I think this pattern is perfect to knit up a cozy pillow or fun holiday-themed decor.

Right and Wrong Sides of the Brick Stitch Pattern

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