Stitches Wednesday #4

This week is my favorite Binary Stitches© pattern by far.  The reversibility of all the Binary Stitches© makes this a very interesting journey.  Many times, I’ve wanted to knit a particular stitch pattern to find out the “wrong side” is just that.  Recently, a fellow knitter shared with me her experience knitting a shawl with slip stitches that didn’t look so great on the wrong side.  So here is #4…

Here’s a current project using this week’s featured stitch.  The particular yarn I am using, Plymouth Yarn, Arequipa worsted 90% Superwash Merino and 10% Mulberry Silk highlights the stitch definition beautifully.

I’m not quite sure where I’m going with this…buttons, vintage trim or maybe even a zipper.
