Fish Scale Knit Stitch Pattern

Learning knitting stitches does seem a bit boring at times, cause it feels like you are learning the theory. But the thing is, once you master the stitch, then knitting a hat, headband or a scarf is just a matter of knowing simple math and having a bit of persistence, in case the first attempt fails πŸ™‚ Today I’m happy to share with you a so called fish scale stitch pattern that’s made of knits, purls and selvage stitches. It has more of a classic look, beginner-friendly and falls within “can’t wait to knit something with it” category πŸ˜‰ Without further ado, let’s get started!
