  1. I love this stitch. Totally disagree with the statement that you are unskilled knitter. I would say you are very skilled and highly creative. Similar to bullion stitch of embroidery and crochet. Would love to knit it as a cowl if I can figure out how to work it in the round. Thanks again for sharing this very creative stitch pattern!

  3. I reckon that if you want to knit in the round, you'll knit it inside out, making all the knit town purl rows- then turn it right-side out when you're done :)

    1. Hi. You can cast on a multiple of 4 sts plus edge stitches for the moss stitch/garter stitch border. It will take a lot of time to complete.

  9. I've tried to knit this about 3 or 4 times and when I get to row 6 I always have an extra stitch. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, I guess I'll just try again and pay close attention. This is a really awesome pattern and I hope I can get it down.
