Brick Stitch Knitting Pattern looks like a classic brick wall with bricks cemented together as embossed edges. It is not a reversible knitting pattern where the wrong side is different from the right side. This classic pattern can be knitted in two colors, where one color can be the ‘cement’ of the other colored ‘brick’ motif.
The Brick Stitch features the basic knit and purl stitches and the slip stitch. Unlike the Garter & Brick Slip Stitch, there is no garter stitch, and it features only the stockinette stitch.
This beginner-friendly knitting pattern is perfect for any holiday-themed decor, and you can use it to knit up a cozy pillow.
