Silt Stitch Crochet Tutorial
The amazing texture of the silt stitch is all in the placement of alternating single crochet and double crochet stitches! You might notice that the Soft Moss Stitch and the Grit Stitch also use alternating single crochet and double crochet stitches. The difference lies in the placement. Make sure to check out each post to see the differences! I love that we can create decidedly different textures with simple stitch placement!
Here is what you will need:
- Any size hook. I used US G6/4 mm crochet hook (Did you know you can purchase my go-to hooks on Amazon?)
- A yarn weight that works with your hook size. I used worsted weight yarn.
- tapestry needle and scissors
Remember, you can make your swatch with any size hook and yarn weight. Read all about How to Swatch Here.
