The Cocoon Stitch creates a fascinating texture! Small textured cocoons are nested among waving ribs to make a beautiful bumpy fabric. It would be fabulous used as a table runner, bag or even an interesting sweater.
The Box Stitch pattern is similar to the seed stitch since it alternates knits and purls but in a 2x2 pattern rather than 1x1. The result is a checkered texture that is great for washcloths, pillows, and scarves.
The Tweed Stitch is a great pattern for beginner knitters to help move beyond the normal knit and purl stitch. It creates a pebble like textured fabric that’s great for scarves, bags, and even sweaters. It’s also a great stitch for menswear.
