We wrap up the month of stolen stitches with, well, a classic Cashmere stitch, using one type of thread (wool). So, not something that should really jump out at you. Yet, this stitch does. I really love it.
It's an unpretentious stitch brought to life with two colors of wool in a clever use of color within the columns. This would make a darling sweater, roof, walkway, house...you get the idea. As much as I love to combine threads with different finishes, this little gem reminds me to combine colors.

I hope you learned something from the month stolen stitches. Next month's theme is "More is More." So, yes, there will be lots of beads and lots of thread finishes. It was really fun to assemble and I hope you will enjoy it!
I hope you have the perfect spot for this stitch! Enjoy!
