The Crunch Stitch – Pattern Description
The Crunch Stitch is a double-sides 2-row repeat pattern constructed with alternating slip stitches and half double crochet stitches that create a dense and bumpy texture to your work.
It works great on any project that needs to look good from both sides and be warm such as baby blankets, modern afghans, hats, cowls, shawls and accessories.
The Crunch Stitch is easy to remember once you’ve made the first couple of rows. You can watch your favorite show and crochet away without having to count stitches or rows.
