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
Below is a pictorial on how to do a sl st and how to seam the squares together.
I have added a crochet brick stitch to my crochet stitch category, it is a lovely close
stitch made with a main color yarn and a splash of contrast color to bring it alive,
use for place mats, coasters, dishcloths, pot holders or blankets and throws.
I have used 2 colors, but you could use a few different contrast colors if you wish.
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.
Today I’ve added the arch column crochet stitch to my stitch collection.
It is made over 2 rows of pattern and is quite easy to do once you get into a flow
with it, turn this beautiful stitch into baby garments, blankets, cushion covers,
chair backs etc.
Use different color yarns to give a stunning effect, scroll down the page to learn
how to crochet this classic stitch.
The tension-gauge of your work is important as it can change how your item
looks and the finished size, all people crochet differently so it is always best
to check the tension-gauge …….
