How to Knit Hedgehog Mittens – DIY -> make a hedgehog and an otter one for each hand and you've got John and Sherlock! now to find an otter mitten pattern… <-the hedgehog would have to be for the right hand, because John is Sherlock's right hand man :)
This decoration for knitted projects looks like Latvian Knitting, but is really just crocheted slip stitches made into a knitted foundation. It's really easy to do and is a very effective way to add design interest to your knitting.
No "Amazing texture stitch! Text is in Russian, but there are many more clear pictures. The stitch looks beautiful on either the knit or the purl side. I'm looking forward to trying this great technique." comment via
