The Knotted Boxes Stitch

Stitch Description

The knotted boxes is a heavily textured knitting fabric. It creates the illusion of smooth vertical stripes woven with bumpy horizontal rows. To some it may look like small offset knots, making a pattern of checkered boxes. Either way, this all-over pattern works great on large pieces of fabric, where it can really shine.

Use this on blankets, pillows, scarves, or washcloths
