The allover open crossed stitch pattern in Crossroads is a great fit for Heaven’s Hand Silke, don’t you think? The stripes take on a softer, less dense quality due to the diagonal movement in the fabric. The crossed stitches create stability so the needle size is bigger than normal for the weight of the yarn. And the drape is beautiful…
