I will admit that I always use the same stitch. I hardly venture outside of my comfort zone. I am so glad that I found this free pattern and tutorial by Cheryl Fall on About.com. I love that the pattern was inspired by a piece of jewelry. It uses several stitches, one of which I plan to master, the Detached Chain Stitch. I will conquer it!
