It feels like forever since I’ve added a stitch-of-the-week. I have been working on them, I just need to find time to add them to the blog. Hopefully I’ll get back in the swing of things. Here’s a new one. I’ve made it into a dishcloth so you have a project to go along with it. Enjoy!

    • Michelle, you would use whatever hook is recommended for the yarn you are using.
