Basic double loom knitting stitches. I have found that the knit or twisted knit is the best cast on method. Once casting on is complete you can change to whatever stitch you want (stockinette, single aka knit double or triple rib, twisted stockinette, twisted knit, honeycomb, etc.)
A kitchen island with built-in seating is a great option if you are into breakfast nooks but your kitchen layout can't accommodate the usual design for it - built in a corner, adjacent to a wall. Do you want to have a kitchen island with built-in seating as a dining area at home?
