There are many ways to give our hand knits character and texture is one of our favorite ways. Not only does texture create cool patterns for our knitted fabrics, but often times the raised stitches offer extra warmth, too. Cable are a go-to way to create texture, but texture can be achieved in so many ways, including seed stitch, garter stitch, or slipped stitches.
