If it's Friday, it must be...

Swatch: Stash Day
Revisiting the Cobblestone Stitch

A couple of Fridays ago, I shared the cobblestone stitch with you and promised that I would be posting a FO that was made in this impressive and unique-looking stitch. So, here it is….
I’ll be honest and tell you that it was an intimidating pattern to make at first.  I wasn’t positive that I could pull it off — working the two colors every eight rows and also between each cobblestone — but once I got the hang of it, it went quickly and smoothly.  It actually was a lot of fun watching the cobblestones develop.
I used Patons Classic Wool in currant and chestnut brown, not two colors I would have typically thought to put together, but I think it works especially as a scarf. This little object now belongs to my niece Kristina, and I like the idea of her wearing it with her vintage fashions.
It’s great as a scarf, but I’m thinking of trying this stitch in a cowl and maybe even a skirt! Will keep you posted….
