Allover stitch patterns don’t have to be boring. I love the simple texture of a good Moss Stitch project, or you can take an unusual stitch pattern and repeat it to really cool effect.
The Pebble Cowl from Anjali/Affiknitty Designs is an example of that. This fun textured stitch looks amazing in a multicolored yarn, and it’s not that hard to do. The pattern includes a photo tutorial to make it easier.
The design calls for worsted weight yarn, and you can use a multicolored yarn or make this a stash buster if you want to add color with what you have on hand.
You can grab a copy of the pattern from Ravelry.
