Bargello Stitch

Basket weave Stitch. Bean Stitch. Berry Stitch. Blanket Stitch. Blended Arrows Stitch. A while back, I was Christmas shopping and ran across a crochet book.

Blended Arrows Stitch

I flipped through it, and was generally unimpressed, but I did see one afghan pattern that was interesting. I decided not to buy the book because out of dozens of patterns only one was something I'd want and it was over twenty dollars. Earlier this week, I recalled the pattern and decided to try it out as I remembered it. Broomstick Lace Tutorial. This is a very wordy and picture-ey tutorial because it is a pretty involved process, so please bear with me!

Broomstick Lace Tutorial

I’ll break it into four parts: Tips, Starting the Base, Working the First Row of Loops, and Making the First Row of Lace. This is gonna be intense . . . Broomstick Lace in the Round. This is part four of our broomstick lace series.

How to Crochet: Cable stitch {3-dc Cross-over} We used the cable stitch in this week’s square for the Block a Week CAL 2014, and I loved it so much that I thought I should do a tutorial on it (and use it in some patterns while I’m at it).

Cable Stitch

The crochet cable stitch, or 3-dc cross-over, is worked over 4 st’s. It is tricky to work this stitch into a foundation chain, so I suggest starting with a base row/round with multiples of 4 st’s. If you need help figuring out how many chains to make for your required/preferred base row/round, see this post by Rhonda from OombawkaDesign. Working in Rounds/Spirals. Charted Picture Afghans. Checkerboard Pattern by One Virtuous Woman. Clamshell Tutorial. Difficulty: Medium - ★★☆ (I've put this as medium because there are a couple of tricky stitches, but if you're a beginner, don't worry, I'll walk you through it, so don't be too put off!)

Depending on the pattern designer, this stitch may also be referred to as a cable stitch. The stitch creates a nice texture on both the front and back sides of the crocheted fabric. Crunchy Stitch.

Crocheting culicues are one of the most simple and fun things I've made in a while...oh and they are addicting too!


For this I'm using an H hook and some worsted weight yarn I had laying around (here's a hat pattern for you I made a while back with this yarn) To begin, make a chain as long as you would like your curlicue to be plus 3 chains (the one shown here is 20+3), Dotted Doubles Crochet Tutorial. I think that I tend to prefer crochet patterns and stitches that don’t lend themselves well to changing colors for a very lazy reason. I hate weaving in the ends. In fact, my grandmother doesn’t even do it, instead knotting the ends like crazy and trimming them up. I must admit in my earlier days of crochet it is what I did as well, not knowing any better, and I’d get frustrated when an afghan I worked ages on unraveled after a couple of rounds in the washer and dryer.

Linen Stitch. I know this stitch as the Linen Stitch, but have also seen it called the Moss Stitch (although the Moss stitch as I know it is slightly different). You might know it by a different name, and if you do, please let me know. It is one of the simplest stitch patterns to master and yields a pretty, woven, dense fabric. The reason it is so simple is that you don’t even have to know how to work into the loops of the single crochet stitches, because you will be working into the ch-1 spaces between single crochet stitches instead.
