My thoughts:

This stitch is different than the others in that it’s not one that you repeat to make a blanket, but this is a stitch that you can use as a beginning border for a hat, blanket, or other project. I really like the simplicity of this border, I hope you can use it on your future project :)

I created this using reverse stockinette as the front, but you can use the back as the front if you’re knitting in stockinette stitch.
