Here’s a stitch that looks like an ice cream. Two colours blend together to create an eye candy. Use this stitch pattern as a decoration on a hat, or as an all-over pattern for a scarf, sweater or blanket.

Colorwork Stitch Pattern

Note: the chart depicts stitches in right side rows from right to left (that is, your first stitch in right side row will be the first stitch on the right of the chart), and stitches in wrong side rows from left to right (that is, your first stitch in wrong side row will be the first stitch on the left of the chart). To make this concept easier, the number of each row is shown at the beginning of the row (number 1 is on the right side of the chart and number 2 is on the left side).
