About this item
One simple little stitch—single crochet—can look so very different with just a few minor tweaks. The different textures come from the way the hook is inserted into the stitch in the row below—we'll show you how! Three little must-have accessories explore this phenomenon. Make one pair. Or make all three!
TUTORIALS IN THIS PATTERN:
- Three stitch patterns using only single crochet.
