Spot Crochet Stitch

The Spot Crochet Stitch works up quickly and easily. In fact, I think you might be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make this charming crochet pattern. By alternating 3 rows of single crochet with 1 row of single crochet and double crochet clusters, you create a close weave fabric perfect for making clothing, fashion accessories, items for your home and much more.

Also, as promised in yesterday’s post, all April blog posts have been filed in their appropriate pages up at the top of the blog. I’ve added a couple more pages to make it easier for you to find things too.


Here is a link to my newly refurbished blog, complete with new content – also as promised:

I’d love to see you there, where we can talk about writing and all things pertaining to it. Plus, after participating in such a fantastic A – Z Challenge, and visiting so many amazing blogs, I intend to share my finds on a regular basis. You might end up discovering yours among the posts dedicated to this venture, where I highlight my favorite blogging destinations. Onto your pattern now….
