Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Weekly Crochet Square: Week 18

This week's square is a fun little stitch that creates a soft textured look on one side, and an untextured back side.
The stitch is easy. It has alternating rows of single crochet (sc) stitches in one row, and a combo of sc, chain (ch), and, half double crochet (hdc) stitches in the next. The texture is made with the sc row. You will work behind the ch 2 of the previous row (pushing the ch 2 forward) and make your sc stitches in the sc stitches of the previous row. Trust me... it isn't as confusing as I just made it sound. I promise! Just follow step by step, and you will pick it up right away.
