People are always looking for a stitch or stitch combination that leaves no holes in the created fabric. Well, this one might be for you. Clever crocheter Rhondda Mol found this stitch in an antique crochet book and updated the instructions, including a video, so that the rest of us can figure out the stitch.
At first, I thought this was just a slip stitch. The slip stitch or single crochet will both create a dense fabric, but the front and back appear differently. With the stitch that Rhondda has updated for us, we get the attractive V pattern on both sides of the fabric.
Rhondda offers a cap pattern for us to practice this stitch. I love the way it looks! What toddler wouldn’t love to have this cap, with or without the cutie flower attached? Works for boy or girl. I think the stitch is particularly well suited to a hot pad or coaster. The density of the stitch will make it protective. But, don’t take my word for it. Visit Rhondda’s blog and see her well illustrated tutorial and video, along with that free cap pattern, and the charming story of how she found this stitch. I’m going to be looking for the antique book she purchased if only for its sweet cover!
