How to: Extended Crochet Stitches

Extended Crochet Stitches

This week on Ask Me Monday, I showed how to work extended crochet stitches including extended single crochet, extended double crochet, and extended triple crochet.  Extended crochet stitches are a great way to add a little height, but without as much weight or girth as traditional, taller stitches. Watch the rebroadcast, then use the practice swatch instruction below to take your new skills for a spin!
