Fur Stitch pattern design
Fashion's recent love affair with fur has certainly caused the fur to fly. Whether or not you choose to agree or disagree on this issue, there are alternatives that give the illusion of fur pile.
One such alternative is the loop stitch pattern and working this stitch singly or double, using different yarn types and weights will produce a variety of textures. Loops may remain as loops or cut for a fringe-like effect. Felting the fringe will matt the strands causing yet another interesting texture.
Examples shown above and below the jump illustrate just how versatile this stitch is and how different a look the garment takes on.
