Little Birds Stitch Pattern is an all-over cable pattern that creates a beautifully textured fabric. The knitted fabric looks like it has sleeping little birds perched all over the surface.
It is a delicate and subtle pattern that is great for projects with patterns in large areas. You can knit projects like cardigans, pillows, or even tote bags. With slight modification, you can go about knitting the Little Birds Stitch Pattern in the round to make mittens or hats.
