If you love to learn new crochet stitches, give this simple and textured one try!
This design is worked with the chain, single and double crochet stitches with just one repeating row, so it’s great for beginners and experienced crocheters (and everyone in between).
Because this fabric is worked with basic stitches in a simple repeat, you’ll be able to easily work this without a lot of thinking and counting.
The best thing about this stitch is that it creates a reversible crochet fabric; that means either side can be the right side and neither side is the wrong side! The Woven Stitch looks great on both sides because it looks exactly the same either way.
The Woven Stitch is a really basic texture, creating a dense fabric that can be used in so many ways: washcloth, tote bag, sweater, pillow cover, blanket, and more.
It’s a great stitch to try because:
- Practice it with cotton yarn to make a washcloth (bonus, these are great gift ideas)!
- The textured fabric is great for the kitchen or bathroom!
- You’ll get to practice crochet skills: even stitch and pattern tension, gauge & size, finishing techniques & more!
