It's time for another round ofStitch of the Week! This week, I am focusing on another basic crochet stitch, double crochet. This stitch is featured in Volume 4 of the Vogue Stitchionary.
Sample Info Hook: H Yarn: Red Heart SuperSaver Beginning Chain: 14 Gauge: 4.5 stitches = 1 inch, 2 rows = 1 inch Double Crochet is another basic stitch, but it is very versatile. It can be used in a variety of projects.
Probably my favorite project using double crochet is the star baby blanket. I have made four of these already, in different colors, and can't wait until I get to make another.
Welcome to the first installment of my new feature: Stitch of the Week! This week, I am focusing on a basic crochet stitch, single crochet. This is the first stitch in Volume 4 of the Vogue Stitchionary.
Sample Info Hook: H Yarn: Red Heart SuperSaver Beginning Chain: 13 Gauge: 1 inch = 4.5 stitches, 5 rows
Single Crochet is a basic stitch, but it is very versatile. It can be used in a variety of projects, from washcloths to amigurumi.
For the last few years, I have been collecting the Vogue Knitting Stitchionary books. I even have volume 4, the volume of crochet stitches. The books are beautiful and a great resource.
I find these books very inspiring, and recently they inspired me to start a new feature on this blog.
Each week I will be presenting a stitch of the week, some knitting, some crochet. I will create a swatch using the stitch and will link to tutorials or create my own video or picture tutorial on how to use the stitch. Come back tomorrow for the first stitch of the week. I hope you enjoy this new feature.
