We like unique and different stitches, that are also easy to knit. Textures are one of our best allies to give a touch that differentiates our projects without adding an excessive complexity at the time of using our needles. Today we will teach you a stitch pattern with a lot of character: the jacquard stitch.

Let’s see it!
