Stitch of the Month: Brick and Mortar Stitch

Learn how to knit the Brick and Mortar Stitch
This month I'd like to share a simple colorwork stitch that looks almost as cool on the wrong side as the right side, the Brick and Mortar Stitch, aka Brick Stitch or Brick Wall stitch. It is worked in two colors across a multiple of 4 sts +1.

Brick and Mortar Stitch

Row 1 (RS): With Color A, k all sts.
Row 2 (WS): With Color B, [sl 1, p3] to last stitch, sl 1.
Row 3: With Color B, sl 1, [k3, sl 1] across.
Row 4: With Color A, p all sts.
Row 5: With Color A, k all sts.
Row 6: With Color B, [p2, sl 1, p1] to last st, p1.
Row 7: With Color B, k1, [k1, sl1, k2] across.
Row 8: With Color A, p all sts.

Repeat Rows 1-8 for the desired length.

This is what the stitch looks like on the wrong side. There's a very subtle texture.

Stitch of the Month: Brick and Mortar Stitch
The color work in the knit Brick and Mortar stitch is deceptively simple and wait until you see the "wrong" side.
