Did you know that knitting had been around for almost 1200 years before anyone thought to throw in a purl stitch? That’s right, it took craftsmen twelve (twelve!) centuries to variate from stockinette. I don’t know about you, but that seems like an awfully long time to spend on a solitary stitch.
One of my favorite things about knitting today is that there are so many different stitches from which to choose. I love the texture of seed stitch for a cozy baby blanket, but I prefer my sweaters in traditional cable stitch designs. I adore garter stitch for a mindless TV-knitting project, but I always choose chevron stitch knitting to keep my fingers nimble.

With over 145 different patterns (each of which focus on a single stitch), you’re sure to find a design that catches your eye.
