Happy Crocheting!


  1. That’s a bit different to the grit stitch I’ve seen before. I’ts actually the same as a stitch I’ve used on booties and hats but that pattern calls it “shell stitch”. Don’t ya just love consistant naming of stitches. :)

    • I have done a lot of things with the shell stitch. This is not a shell stitch. I like the stitch and have almost finished my first dishcloth with this stitch. Very easy pattern.

  2. Just what I was looking for to make a neck scarf! Maybe even a hooded one! Very pretty stitch!

  3. Very pretty pattern, easy to follow,thanks for sharing.

  4. Do you have a printer-friendly patterns??? that would be great.

    • Josephine, I’m working on uploading all my free patterns in pdf. Hopefully they will all be up soon.
