    This pattern is going to be a real challenge for me.I think it is real pretty too. Also like the
    New Stitch a Day web site. Have learned a lot from it.

    This is a really simple stitch.  It adds a different texture to a other wise basic  stockinette stitch.  Thank for adding something else to my lust for learning.  😉
