It has a nice texture to it, similar to the Blanket stitch we knitted a couple of weeks ago, it’s ideal for knitting blankets, scarves, cowls, sweaters, hats, mittens, baby clothing, cushions… you name it 😉

This swatch is knitted in 100% cotton yarn, using 5 mm needles:

Remember, even for knits and purls stitches, everything will be easier if you use sharp tip knitting needles 😉
