The Roman Stitch makes a striking and simple textured fabric. Made using only knits and purls, it's a great all-over pattern for a novice knitter.
Hurdle Stitch is:I have done the Hurdle Stitch … I think it is the same except for one fewer knot row and one fewer Purl row. Hurdle is officially an4 row pattern. But I have done it with even more stockinette rows in between.
the Willow Dishcloth uses Hurdle at the beginning and end sections with seed stitch in the middle.
