The Little Fountain Pattern is actually quite easy to stitch up once you have mastered the basic knitting stitches and have a little practice. The most difficult stitch in this pattern is to knit two together and pass the slip stitch over it. Little Fountain turns an ordinary stockinette stitch into a beautiful pattern.

Skill level: Intermediate

4 Stitch pattern repeat.
