woodstacking is yet another quick knit piece you can whip up at the last minute for that new boyfriend your sister decided to bring home or your beloved mail carrier. it wouldn’t even be out of the question to make several for office mates.
its deeply textured, cable and moss fabric is universally appealing and the pattern has a size for everyone—truly a piece you can make ahead and decide later who it will be perfect for.
not only that, this is an excellent stashbuster project—i bet we all have yarn for it in the house already. just about any soft DK yarn will work well—the motif is very forgiving, with great stitch definition built right in.
