    Do you have written instructions for the crinkle stitch? I prefer them to a video, but I can’t find them anywhere.

    Learned something new today. I was going to start my afghan last night but hadn’t decided on a stitch as yet. This will be perfect! I am putting this in my personal library as we speak.

    I love the crinkle stitch. I use that stitch to crochet dish mats for my kids to replace the bath towel on counters. They love them! I also make dishcloths to match using the same stitch as well as other stitches. The closer stitch is more popular in my family for using in the kitchen.

    It’s does look like a nice Warm afghan to make. Maybe should show this pattern in a bright color, it may change some people thoughts on this stitch. What do you thing? Mikey

      The gray is kind of dismal. I was on a kick back when this was filmed to keep the colours camera friendly. So I was avoiding brighter colours and etc. Since this, I invested in new equipment and etc and today it’s not a problem. 🙂 Live and learn right! 🙂

        I personally like grey, especially a darker grey. I just watched a couple videos and I was wondering, if when you are working a pattern in “stripes” of different colors, you have ever carried the yarn up the side instead of fastening off when changing colors. You have to be working an even number of rows, say 2. Work across and back, drop that color and add the new color, work across and back. Then, if you are only using 2, you drop the 2nd color and pick back up the first and so on. Works great with 2 colors, pretty good with 3 colors but 4 colors is a little much, I don’t recommend that many. The yarn that is carried up the side has to have slack in it that is equal to the height of the 2 rows of the next color. These are covered when the edging is put on. REALLY reducing the number of ends that have to be worked in. Seems to save time, but you do have to untwist the strands of yarn occasionally.
