This stitch has an amazingly soft puffy texture and cute colour pattern. It would look great on any baby or kids project, as well as on a scarf, cowl or a blanket.

Yarn – Knitca Chunky 100% wool in Crimson as colour A, and Mint as colour B

All abbreviations are explained in the Key to Chart.
You can also work according to the chart below. Pattern repeat is marked by red frame.
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).
