Crochet Spiral Rib

 

This week on Ask Me Monday, we kick off the year with the Crochet Spiral Rib stitch that I use in my latest YarnYAY! design, the Leggy Boot Toppers and Legwarmers. I’ll show how to work the stitch pattern in both in-the-round and flat methods so that you have the skills to make any Crochet Spiral Rib project. Enjoy!
