I am always on the lookout for interesting stitch patterns. I found this two-color lattice stitch on a ready-to-wear sweater in a catalog. I could not figure out the pattern from the photo so I ordered the sweater, especially so I could see the reverse side of the stitches. I haven’t decided yet if I will return the sweater, so if you see me wearing a pullover that looks a lot like this cowl, don’t tell anyone that it is store bought.
