Have you learned these stitches yet:
- Single Crochet
- Half Double Crochet
- Double Crochet
If you have learned these foundation stitches, then you're on your way to mastering any crochet stitch!
That's right, any crochet stitch!
See, in the most basic form, these stitches are the foundation for any other stitch in crochet (that's why we call them foundation stitches).
When you master foundation stitches (counting individual stitches, counting individual rows, right side, wrong side, stitch placement), you're absolutely read to try more complex variations.
Let's take the Alternating Spike Stitch, for example:
This texture is created with: Chain, Single Crochet.
That is it!
However, it's the variation in placement that creates this texture.
Let's look at something a bit more advanced: Cable Towers
This texture is created with: Chain, Half Double Crochet, Double Crochet.
Yep, that is it!
Again, it's the variation in the placement of these stitches that creates this texture.
If you're still wondering how this could possibly be true, let's look at one more example: Diamond Lace
This texture is created with: Chain, Double Crochet.
And, that is it!
Once again, the variation in the placement of these stitches is creating the lacy texture shown.
Now that we've outlined foundation stitches in crochet, and how they can help you to master any crochet stitch...
