      It would be sooooo much nicer if you actually gave a pattern when you show a new stitch. like the one you just did with the cable why not show us what stitches you used throughout the whole row as it would be for a scarf ect.

        1. We don’t have time to research a pattern that use each stitch on this site.

        2. This is a technique stitch so it is meant to help people who encounter this stitch in a pattern and do not know how to do it.

        3. This site is meant to inspire you to use these techniques and stitches in your own work.
