Textured fabrics are a feast for the senses, captivating our eyes, hands, and mind in the most subtle of ways. These seemingly complex patterns almost compel us to reach out and touch while sparking emotions and memories that inspire. Whether its squishy seed stitch evoking a need for comfort or bold bobbles that remind us of our grandmother’s quilt, knitted texture is a wealth of imagination, creativity, and revelation. SweetGeorgia Yarns has so many beautifully textural patterns in its library, but these knit and crochet projects make the heart pitter-pat a little more.
