This stitch is one of my favorites and I have used it as part of the Sampler Poncho CAL with Itchin’ for some Stitchin’.
This stitch is easy to follow and works up so beautifully. I love to use it for headbands and recently put it into a square for the CAL.
Whenever I create something of my own I always love to use this stitch its full of texture and very versatile.
