Friends, meet the Crochet Rope Stitch! Do you love it as much as I do? (And isn’t that color yummy?) It has so much body. It would look great in a scarf, shawl and all kinds of other great crochet projects!Are you having fun learning new crochet stitches with me? I love how we can take basic stitches we already know and get a whole new look by combining those stitches in a different way!
Remember, when making swatches, be sure to attach hang tags to the swatches so you can remember the stitch you made later. I like these larger hang tags so I can write out the pattern on the back for even easier reference. It’s a great way to remember the stitch as your collection of swatches grows.
It also comes in handy if you crochet a swatch you’re going to put on your blog and completely forget the name of the stitch. ahem… That NEVER happens here. cough. cough.
You can read everything you need to know about stitch swatching here.

- A yarn weight that works with your hook size. I used worsted weight yarn.

Remember, you can make your swatch with any size hook and yarn weight. Read all about How to Swatch Here.
