About this Stitch Pattern
This stitch is more complicated than it appears. Using only two rows it manages to create an intricate, almost woven style fabric that looks quite unique. The portcullis stitch is easy to mess up, so pay close attention to what you are doing.
Looks great in blankets, scarves, and hats.
