What are alternate stitches?
The alternate stitch is a very simple stitch that provides texture and visual appeal to your projects. If you can make a single crochet, you can make the alternate stitch. In this post you will find a video to teach the stitch, written instructions, and a written and charted pattern for a practice piece.
What is the biggest crochet stitch?
The treble crochet is a tall stitch that works up quickly and a little taller than the double crochet. Remember, you will never work in the first chain from the crochet hook, unless the pattern you are working specifically directs you to do so. We will now begin working Row 1 of treble crochet.
Does using a bigger crochet hook use less yarn?
If you are using the same pattern (same number of stitches and rows/rounds), a larger crochet hook will use up more yarn. If you are going for the same size of project (say a 36 by 36 inch blanket), a larger crochet hook will use up less yarn.
