Learn Tunisian Crochet (pg. 5) will show you how to create the Tunisian stitch, which is perfect for wallets, headbands, and other small items. This technically easy stitch is a great way to hone your skills, and it produces a dense and "squishy" fabric. This crochet stitch tutorial will show you how to start off with a Tunisian foundation row and then work both the forward and return passes of the Tunisian Simple Stitch (tss).
The Vertical Crocodile Stitch (pg. 9) is another easy stitch that won’t take you long to understand. This stitch, resembling scales on a crocodile, will add a bit of flare and some fun texture to any pattern you add it to. Its twisting, circular design is a fun stitch to learn. This stitch can also look like petals on a flower, which makes it one of the most versatile skills to learn and will set you on a path to working up everything from edgy scale designs to delicate floral pieces.
The next stitch you’ll learn to master is the Picot Stitch (pg. 12). This is usually used as an edge for a finished product; it’s perfect for adding a little something extra to your sweater or scarf or even a hat. The included instructions for this crochet stitch include ways to make a small picot, a medium picot stitch, and even a bauble-ended picot stitch. The possibilities for this simple technique are endless!

I am looking for a baby blanket pattern that I have misplaced. I made the blanket many years ago. It was double crocheted in white. Then I crocheted a long chain stitch in three different colors and weaved each chain through the double crochet (V stitch ???). Tied fringed around the blanket. Do you know if you have the pattern??? I made this blanket many years ago. It was very easy to crochet.

Hello Darla, Unfortunately, I could not locate the blanket based on your description. However, you can use the search bar at the top of our site to look for "Cuddle Soft Baby Blanket." I believe that blanket might be very similar, except it has no fringe. Best of luck to you! Jesse, editor of AllFreeCrochet.com

That sounds like an afghan zig zag. It's a long chain stitch then you turn around and do ten single crochets the skip two chains then start another ten crochets to make a point. Which once the blanket was done I put fringe on the points.
