Warmest Knitting & Crochet Stitches for Winter

Warmest Knitting & Crochet Stitches for Winter

It’s cold out there so this week on Ask Me Monday we focus on getting you warm using the three warmest knitting and crochet stitches. In this episode, I cover Fisherman’s Rib, the crochet Thermal Stitch, and Double Knitting. Once you get the hang of these stitches, use them — along with your favorite super bulky yarn, to create scarves, cowls, and other bone-chill-busting projects.
