Crochet Seed Stitch
This week on Ask Me Monday I show two ways to crochet half-double crochet Seed Stitch: in-the-round, and worked flat. This stitch is a great choice for home decor items, blankets, or mittens like those featured in the February YarnYAY! subscription box.
Give the episode a watch, then practice with the swatches below. Oh, and don’t forget to bookmark this tutorial for future reference!
