Do my eyes deceive me ?!

That’s called Sedge stitch . Looks good, I reckon. I started trying it out with the thickest yarn in my stash – something like DK – and pretty soon realized what I was making looked nothing like THAT.

Then I found another pattern using Sedge stitch, on the same site:

which provided a third version of it.

I thought: ‘Oh well, there you are, you halfwit: if you expect a stitch you like the look of to come out as in its picture, you have to use the same yarn weight. DUMMY !’

Yes: I am very often speaking thus to myself. Many, many people tell me that I’m too hard on myself; but as far  as I’m concerned, anyone who does  the moronic things I do deserves to be apostrophized in that kind of language. I have spoken.   [grin]

So I’ve learned two things:

  1. that my list of stitches sites cannot be judged on its own recognizances; and
  2. that the first photo keeps reversing itself in my vision. Heaven knows why; but every other (or so) time I look at it, it seems to be in concave version !
    This is a wrinkle for occasions of which I must be on the qui vive.
