The Crochet Celtic Weave Stitch Cowl is a great introductory project to this texture-rich project. Learn the Celtic Stitch.
This type of stitch feels wrong to the natural movement of crochet but once you get comfortable and get rid of the fear, it gets much easier. So you may feel like giving up too soon in the journey.
This concept will open up the gateway to other projects where the stitches are done the same way but in a different project.
