      I love knittingonthenet! When you create a pattern from scratch (an original pattern), you sometimes need some assistance with some already made stitches that you can combine. Thank you for sharing the site that has all of those stitches. That will really help people who are trying to make their own patterns. Also, it has stitches for the more advanced knitter and for the beginner. We appreciate you sharing! Great job!
