Distinct ribs of stockinette crisscross gently over a purl background, creating a deeply-carved pattern that is further accented by eyelet highlighting. The stitch pattern looks to be cabled, but is achieved with simple decreases and has a pretty reverse side as well. This project is a good all ‘rounder for beginning and experienced knitters alike.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
