Add some texture to your knitting projects!
Knit and purl stitch patterns are easy enough for beginners to master. They add a lovely texture to the knitting, are fun to make, and look way more complicated than they are.
Adding a bit of texture to a project can really make it pop!
When I try out a new stitch pattern I knit a swatch the size of a dishcloth with bamboo, linen, or cotton yarn. This way I get to try the stitch pattern while I finish a project at the same time 🙂
