The checked rose stitch is a two colored stitch in the brioche family. It’s a double layered fabric, with one color used for the front of the stitch and a second color for the back. The resulting window panes allow alternate colors to show. The checked rose stitch is also a reversible pattern, with the inverse color coming through on the wrong side. Like all brioche stitches, this pattern has a fluffy, thick fabric, that’s incredibly soft and warm.
This knitting pattern is perfect for blankets, scarves, and even hats.
Cast On: Multiples of 2 + 1
