Stitch of the week this week is the Sand Stitch. A nice textured stitch that looks great in rows of different colors. The color from the row above, dips down into the row below. The sand stitch is a great project to showcase yarns that are bold and fun. Once you get the hang of this simple stitch your project comes together extremely quickly.
The stitch tutorial by Amy at the Stitchin Mommy shows you how to practice your new stitch to make an 8 inch square. This would also make a very nice afghan or dishcloth. Or maybe a striking hat design!
- Worsted weight yarn in any color of your choosing. This example uses Lily Sugar ‘n Cream.
- Crochet hook that corresponds with the yarn you are using
Tip – 3 different colors of yarn look great for this stitch.
