It looks complicated, but it is actually quite simple. And you can knit this stitch with one, two or three colors. It is reversible – both sides are beautiful – and it does not curl, so it is a good knitting stitch for decoration projects, like rugs or blankets, or accessories, such as bags or scarfs.
Here we used Rosários 4 70’s cotton yarn (one colour).
