On the crochet front, I have been taken by a simple little crochet stitch, I featured it in my last blog and have become quite obsessed with it. As well as using in two design submissions, (one commissioned) and using in another version of my cushion design for Beginners Crochet Course project, I have now used it for my Refuge square. I love, love, love this stitch so have decided to share with you.
See pattern below this is nice and simple and great for beginners seeking a bit of a change from plain old dc, Oh and really, stupidly quick!
