Day 12: How to Knit the Oyster Pattern Stitch {31 Days of Knitting Series}

Today is Day 12 of our series and the stitch we are demonstrating today is a little more complicated than the average pattern. It’s called the Oyster Pattern Stitch and it creates a really nice fan look by knitting into 5 stitches all at once. It’s really fun once you get the hang of it.
