The King Charles Brocade stitch is a lovely, subtle stitch that will look fantastic in just about any knitting pattern. This stitch is just a series of knits and purls repeated in varying ways that produces a faint diamond design that gives your blanket or scarf a sophisticated, regal look.

Repeat this pattern multiple times for a continuous diamond pattern throughout your project, or knit it only once for a detail. Regardless how you use it, you're bound to fall in love with this stitch in no time. Whether you use this stitch to add decoration to a knitted hat or to create lovely added texture on a sweater pattern, this stitch is versatile enough to work with just about any project. Plus, it's a great way for beginner knitters to ease into more complicated stitches.

This looks like an easy stitch pattern to master. I should try it out on a top that I am thinking of doing for myself.

A delightful pattern stitch that can be used in so many projects - thank you for sharing it
