A discussion of various crochet techniques, including Interlocking Crochet™, a unique crochet technique which creates a double-sided fabric.
Also known as a reverse single crochet, backward single crochet and the pie crust stitch, the crab stitch creates a cord edging for your crocheted projects.
When looking at a single crocheted or basic Afghan/Tunisian crocheted item, you'll notice blocks are created by the vertical bars and horizontal threads. These blocks form a mesh on which embroidery stitches can be worked to create a beautiful design. The most popular stitch used is the cross stitch.
If you are someone who crochets a lot of doilies or motifs such as granny squares, you might already own a doily stretcher. However, these are usually vintage and can be rather pricey. Another inexpensive way to block a motif is by using a Styrofoam board or square. Lay your item down, pin around it and then steam or spray it with clear water. However, I had an afghan involving a number of large granny squares. I thought I needed something that would be quick and easy to use – like a Blocking Board.
This book was a big hit with my Fiber Fun Beginning Crocheters Group.
