How to Knit Tile Stitch

This version of tile stitch gives a great square tiled pattern when knitted up. It's quick and easy to knit, using just purl and knit stitches, yet it produces a really lovely looking fabric, perfect for baby blankets when paired with a simple garter stitch edging.

If you're a more visual learner, then I've left a link to the video tutorial at the bottom of this pattern. Happy Knitting!
