Chain Links Stitch Pattern is another simple pattern made just by using the basic knit and purl stitches. It is also referred to as Mosaic stitch pattern, but to us, it literally looks like chains linked together!
The purl stitches used in this create a wonderful texture, which resembles what we usually see in knit cable patterns. As it looks like a cable knit pattern, you can get a look of intertwining cables without having to work on making the super-complicated cable stitches.
This Chain Links free knit pattern is perfect for designing patterns for socks, vests & pullovers because of the vertical stripe look.
