Flat Slip Stitch Joining

Flat slip stitch joining is the ideal method of joining granny squares together.

If you are like me and love making granny squares but do not like stitching
them up, there are many ways to do this and I think one of the easiest ways
is with a slip stitch seam, I feel it gives a more professional finish and look
to it.

Below is a pictorial on how to do a sl st and how to seam the squares together.

Waffle Stitch

I have added the waffle stitch to my stitch category. I have used a worsted weight #3
yarn but as it is quite a chunky design to crochet you may find it crochets up better
using a slightly thinner yarn like sport weight.

I’ve worked the swatch with just one color, but lots of combinations can be made
by using more colors as well, try changing color every two rows for a stripy look.

Make things with this pretty pattern for around your home ie cushion covers,
lapghans or bags etc.

Solid Shell Stitch

I love this solid shell stitch, I have used it for many of my projects, it is a close
together stitch which makes it an ideal design for baby items, there is less chance
of little fingers getting caught in the yarn.

It can also be used for dishcloths, place mats, blankets etc. play with your colors
to get a good combination, I have used 3 different shades but you can easily use
more or less if you wish.

Silt Stitch Written Tutorial

Hi folks, I’ve added a silt stitch to my list of crochet stitches this week, it’s a
great pattern to use for blankets, cushion covers, cell phone, tablet cases etc.
A really easy quick design made up of 2 rows, I have used a few colors but it
would look just as nice in 1 shade or 2, just play with your color combination
until you are happy.
