Where to buy Stormy.
Basic knit-and-purl stitch patterns are great fun to experiment with. You can invent your own with pencil and graph paper; anything is possible, from a small repeatan uneven rib pattern or a variation of seed stitchto a large damask-type pattern of leaves and flowers. If you’re in a sampling mood, take a favorite yarn (or yarns) and work up squares in a variety of knit-and-purl patterns from a stitch dictionary and combine them into a sampler scarf. Or just start knitting a pattern that you like, then when it gets tedious, change to another one. Your gauge might change a bit, but it’s a scarf, after all. It's meant to be fun to knit and a little less than perfect.
