Bear Claw Crochet Stitch

"A lady in my Facebook group shared a picture of an afghan she made a long time ago and has now lost the pattern. She thought it might have been called Bear Claw, but wasn't sure. So I did my best to recreate it by looking at the pictures she shared in the group and this is what I came up with! It really is a simple stitch! Don't let the Front post triple crochets scare you, it's super easy to get down and there's only 4 repeating rows that can be done in your sleep."

This is very nice. I love learning new and different stitches. I have a folder with crochet and knit patterns. They are from my grand mother. Maybe I should start sharing them online. She also did hand quilting and there are all kinds of patterns in there too. I must have gotten the craft gene from her.

What an unusual stitch pattern. I can sympathize with the lady who lost the old patternIve done it plenty especially since Ive had some decade long gaps between laying down the hooks and picking them back up again. Bless Candys heart for collecting these rare stitch patterns together, and most of all, creating the instructional videos for both right AND left handers. If you arent already aware of her YouTube channel, you should be.

It is neat that she is able to share her pattern that she uncovered. We can all have a chance to recreate an afghan just like this for our OWN use! It looks very Navaho or rustic pioneer to me. Think of brown, deep red, saturated mustard, a deep navy. Who would wish to create a long cardigan sweater made from this stitch? How cool would that be?
