  1. I would like to experiment with this stitch. I am in love with circular needles, so the pattern must continue in the round. I find now, when I use straight needles, I drop a needle at the end of a row – so used to circulars that it surprises me each time.

  2. I like the looks of this stitch, it gives me another rib stitch to use for mitts, hats, etc. Thanks Staci.

  3. Thanks for all the great stitches Staci. Have you considered putting all of these stitches together in some type of ebook? I know….some people are never satisfied. I’m trying to put them in a folder so that they are all in one place on the computer. Love the stitches looking forward to more.

  4. Staci…
    I am sooo lovin’ these stitch combos! I’m practicing eah of them in cotton yarn, making dishcloths and washcloths as I practice….and I am going to have some of _the_ fanciest dish/wash cloths in thw world for Christmas Presents!!

    I wondered if you have vertical Chevron stitch tucked away somewhere tha you could bring out and share? The horizontal one is beautiful…but I would like to have a vertical pattern that would work for a throw pillow cover to accent my family room.
    Thans for sharing your beautiful skills with us!!
