You must learn this strong and firm stitch!

As crocheters, we obviously love to learn something new, whether that be a totally new project or a new stitch. The best thing about this is that no matter how difficult or complicated something may seem at first, once we break it down, we are able to see that it is just compromised of some of the more simple and basics stitches!

Using the chain stitch, the double crochet stitch and the occasional half-double crochet, you can make the bloque stitch! This stitch forms a strong, interlocking pattern that is great for bags, scarfs or dish cloths.

Follow along with this wonderful video tutorial from New Stitch A Day (and get the written pattern here)), and give it a try for yourself!

When you are done, be sure to let us know how you have decided to use this new-to-you stitch and show us your finished project; we can not wait to see!
