Stitch of the Month - January 2017
The Granite Stitch is worked over an even number of stitches and four row repeat. The decrease row followed by an increase row creates a dense fabric that looks similar to a row of purl against stockinette but the effect creates a more interesting look and feel. There is less drape to the fabric due to the denseness of the stitch but that's also very appealing attribute of this stitch pattern.
