Mixing Seed and Basketweave

These are some of my favorite stitch patterns. Simple. Repetitive. Yet varied enough to keep me engaged. I’m really enjoying this cotton yarn, too. The brown one is a diamond stitch with a basketweave border. The green is moss stitch. It took me a bit to get the stitch count right so the patterns work.Continue reading “Mixing Seed and Basketweave”

At eleven, she’s almost as tall as me and likes things baggy/loose, so I’m sure this will fit her.Continue reading “One For My Oldest”
