One of the stitches of crochet that I don’t think is taken that seriously with an effective design is the Crinkle Stitch Technique.
Crochet tends to look very train track like. Sometimes I believe that is what deters people from buying crochet crafts as the look is very standardized.
What are the advantages to the crinkle stitch?
- The stitches are tighter and more compressed together.
- Due to the DC and SC working in tandem with each other in this technique, the obvious rows of crochet disappear more into the background instead of being a dominant feature.
- It’s easy and can make for warmer afghans, baby blankets and throws while using this stitch.
- The stitch count is only 2. This means your starting chain should be an even number in order to accomplish this look.
