Hi Anne, you asked a while back if there is a knitting equivalent of 'Grit Stitch'. I'm not sure if anyone has actually replied but I thought I'd have a go. Not being a knitter, I'm a little handicapped but I've trawled through some Google images and I think moss stitch or, possibly even better, double moss stitch is similar in texture. Sorry I can't be more helpful. Elaine
Hi Anne, saw your comment about the blue background for the rainbow. It is a basic crochet stitch. If you can make a chain stitch and what we in Canada call a single crochet, and you call a double crochet, you would be fine with this pattern.
If you "friend" me I will send you the pattern. It is the Plain Jane pattern that will be included in the new KASPattern book.....nearing completion !!
Thanks for your lovely comments - glad you like the chunky jumper, and yes, the Samaritans Purse hat is a real favourite of mine - quick and easy to do, whilst being very warm and stretchy - perfect! as for the clean and tidy house, well, errrmmm, I am quite an organised/methodical person! plus after a day at work I need to come back to 'tidy' to unravel my head - if you know what I mean!!
Chunky%20Jumper.doc here is the chunky jumper pattern - just in case you fancy having a go!! Kathyxx
