Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! Today's stitch pattern is the Falling Leaves Stitch. This stitch has such a beautiful texture and design. This stitch is in The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet Book.
I used Lion Brand's Color Made Easy (Bulky) for one of the swatches. I used Lion Brand's Scarfie for the Video Stitch Tutorial. You can definitely use any worsted weight yarn. The variegated blue yarn is Walmart's Basic Yarn. Not the best but it was under $2. I have a hard time saying no to yarn!
Please visit any of my shops if you would like to purchase ad-free PDF knitting & crochet patterns in a convenient tri-fold format for on-the-go Knitting/Crocheting.
