Narrow Steps Made Flat And Round
"This stitch is as beautiful as it is timeless. Looking at it might make you believe that is hard, but is absolutely not. You simply need to know how to crochet single crochets and treble crochets as well as understand where to place them. this tutorial comes with lots of photos and 2 videos in order to learn how to make this stitch flat and in a round. I hope you enjoy this stitch as much as I do."

This is one of my favorite texture patterns, so I was very happy to see it presented both flat and in the round. Some stitches lend themselves quite naturally to both, but some have to be worked in a very different manner. The designer provides a very nice photo tutorial as well as an instructional video for each. Although it doesnt necessarily look it, this is actually a fairly simple repetitive stitch sequence.

I have never tried doing anything with the name Apache Tears before because it sounded so difficult to do. With this Apache Tears Made Flat and Round tutorial it made it sound and look so easy! I really like this red white and green pattern that would be great for Christmas time. Now that I understand how it's done, there are so many things that can be made using this pattern. There are so many great and clear pictures showing how it should look with clear easy directions. So easy, and not as hard to make as I first thought. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet tutorial for the Apache Tears.

The apache tears resemble the colors of Christmas with the green and red. The pattern for this is made up of double and treble crochet. When growing up my Mom always called treble crochet as triple crochet because what comes after double? Triple of course. I guess that is the old school term?

What a pretty look. I read thru it and it's not hard at all. The colors would make a beautiful Christmas project. I have yarn with silver threads running thru it in these colors and it would make a very special gift for someone I really love. Thank you for sharing this.
