I tend to do a lot of stockinette stitch in my designs because my style is pretty "un-fussy" and I like focusing on nice lines and a good fit more than I enjoy working with intricate stitch patterns. But sometimes it's great to mix it up a little and do something out of the ordinary.
This set combines 4 different stitch types - stockinette, ribbing, a "criss-crossed" woven stitch, and a "faux-color work" dimple stitch. It'll keep you entertained, maybe teach you a new stitch or two, and you'll end up with a cozy winter set that I'm sure would be perfect for someone on your Christmas list!
One blog reader is going to win this pattern along with the yarn to make it. You'll get these three skeins of Knit Picks Capretta in 'harbor' and 'platinum'. I will ship it anywhere on Earth!
