Suzette Ridge Crochet Washcloth – Free Pattern

The simple ridges in the middle are eye catching and create a nice break in the repetitiveness of the suzette stitch. This washcloth works up quickly and has a simple edging to provide a neat and tidy finish. Learn more about this design and find the free pattern below…

Half Double Crochet V Stitch – Crochet Tutorial

I really love the half double crochet stitch. As a basic stitch and one that a crocheter learns in the very beginning, I feel like it deserves more appreciation than it gets. For one, it’s simple but it also creates a lovely, subtle texture with the natural 3rd loop that is created. It looks wonderful on it’s own but also works beautifully mixed in-between other stitches when crocheted in rows or rounds.

There are a few different stitch variations that use the half double crochet and today I’m going to share one with you. The half double v stitch is a fun alternative to the traditional way and creates a really pretty airy and lacey effect.

Crocheting With Sock Weight Yarn

Sock weight yarn (also referred to as fingering weight yarn, super fine or baby), is a fibre that is often associated with knitting. It’s that beautiful yarn most commonly seen wound into beautiful hanks found in your local yarn shops. It’s not unusual to find them at a higher price point due to fibre content and with the beautiful colourways being hand dyed rather than mass produced through a major yarn company.

These yarns are generally marketed to knitters because they are traditionally used in projects like socks, shawls or sweaters with beautiful results. Did you know that this particular yarn also works well with crochet? While geared to knit projects, sock weight yarn can also create beautiful crochet pieces when used in just the right way.
