Stitches that Sing

My favorite stitch patterns are those that have a rhythm. Last night I was putting the finishing touches on my cousins wedding gift and afghan I have been designing for quite sometime now. I was looking for just the right stitch pattern for the block. I was using the Crochet Stitch Bible as my guide and found the diagonal relief stitch which was perfect as all the beige blocks had some texture to it.

As I started to stitch, I realized the awesome two stitch switch pattern that combined fpdc and bpdc my hand sung as it stitched across the row!
