Apache Tears. Beautifully textured, captivating and fascinating! I’m referring to the strikingly mesmerizing Apache Tears crochet pattern. I’ve had quite a few enquiries in regards to this pattern, so today I thought I’d share my tips and technique with you. It’s not a complicated pattern so let’s get started! The following are the ‘basic’ rules when working this pattern: Each row is worked from the right side.Each row is worked from right to left.Ensure to leave a 6 inch tail of yarn when beginning and ending a row.To begin each row, form a slip knot on your hook and commence row.Work all dc in the back loop of stitches.Work all dtr in the front loop of stitch 3 rows below, whilst missing the dc behind on current row.

The pattern may also be customized to your own preferences, producing a dense fabric! When it comes to customizing it all boils down to . . . the spacing . . . you can choose to customize your blanket by working 8 dc, 6 dc or 4 dc etc. Sample 1: Spacing of 8 dc With Red, ch 37.

However it does come down to personal preference because all of these items can be made with either crochet or knitting – it just depends what effect you want. Other differences between the methods are that more detailed patterns and colorwork can be achieved with knitting, and knitting can also be done by machine whereas it’s impossible to crochet by machine.
