Bargello Knit Stitch In-the-Round

This week on Ask Me Monday, I show how to work the Bargello Knit Stitch in-the-round. This stitch pattern packs a lot of visual punch, with relatively low effort. II love that!

Give it a go with the swatch below, then dive into a Bargello Knit Stitch project by making my Lo-Fi Cowl (see below). Enjoy!
