V is for embossed VINE and Leaves Stitch


This stitch is not only coming to you because it is a "V" (although that was certainly a consideration), but also because it is easy to do and can be made up into many different things. Pictures will follow. You can take any stitch and make it your own design by interspersing it with simple stitches to make a quilt, a scarf or just a neck warmer. Thus it becomes yours alone.

Here is the pattern:
