Stitch Play: Savory Twist. www.tabethahedrick.comThe stitch pattern that I played with this week is delightfully springy and textural, making it an ideal choice for borders, warm fabrics, garments, and accessories. You’ll find it on the advanced-intermediate side, but if you’ve been itching to try your hand at twisted stitches in your knitting, then give this a try!
