The Woven Circles Stitch

Stitch Description

The woven circles stitch is an all-over cable pattern. By placing winding cable columns next to each other strategically, the appearance of small circles is created. This gives the fabric a nice geometric design with lots of texture.

Use this stitch in scarves, pillows, or even a hat.
