Fleur De Lys Stitch Knitting Pattern

This Fleur de Lys Stitch is a two-color stranded piece in a Stockinette texture. It is a 6-Row Repeat Knit Stitch Pattern and an intermediate-level project.

This design is a great choice for knitting up stunning blankets, scarves, and pillows. This is not a reversible pattern because the right side of the work displays the design, but you can see that the wrong (back) side does not.

The stylized French Lily design emerges beautifully within the little “Vs” of the stitches and is a fan favorite!
