New Stitches in the 'Knit & Purl' Section

Couple of days ago we added a couple of new stitches in the 'Knit & Purl' section of The first  stitch we'd like to introduce is the Stockinette Bobbles stitch.

This is the first bobble stitch we added to our library as a way to introduce one of the many techniques to make a bobble. All of them begin with making an odd number of stitches (usually 5 or 7) into one and the same stitch on a wrong side row of your work. Then, in the more traditional techniques you need to turn your work, work the newly increased stitches, turn again and decrease the stitches back to one, before continuing with the rest of the right side row. In the technique we used to create the Stockinette Bobbles the increased stitches aren't worked separately and there is no turning of the work for the specific purpose of finishing a bobble. Easy and simple.

The other stitches we included recently are created with nothing more than simple knit and purl stitches. They are also the first stitches with shiny new written instructions!

And here they are:
