Hello Darling!

Do you ever see a stitch that looks so classy and elegant, but maybe a little intimidating? That’s how I have felt about this stitch. I really wanted to try it, but I was scared to. So, it dawned on me, I’d like to design something small just to get my toes wet! I have fallen in love. This stitch is beautiful and fun. I promise it isn’t as hard as is looks! I had a TON of testers and they all were able to make the “Hello Darling Headband”! We worked really hard to get the wording just right! Don’t you just love the texture and simple repeat? I do, is so Darling!
