CLOSER LOOK at the Diamond Brocade Knit Stitch

Let’s take a close look at our Diamond Brocade Knit Stitch Pattern, seeing exactly how those knits and purls are combined to make this elegant pattern.

As you can see, this is NOT a reversible pattern, since the Right and Wrong Sides are different. However, the wrong side has a nice clean look that I wouldn’t mind being visible.
