The GENTLE WAVES Stitch Pattern
Perhaps I am not the first one to make this stitch pattern. But a wavy pattern such as mine is not yet an overly used stitch pattern. Which is such a shame considering how easy it is to crochet and how beautiful the resulting crochet cloth is.
Although I used it here as a pouch, but it would look lovely as a scarf or belt too. It would also work well for an afghan.
Having a variety of colors would also make the stitch pattern pop. Upon experimenting with my pouch I realized that the best number of rows for each stripe is 3. But that’s just me.
I hope you use this stitch pattern for other stuff, too.
One of the most interesting stitch pattern I’ve encountered is the starbust stitch, more commonly known as Catherine wheels stitch. The illusion of dc’s or tr’s radiating from various points, as if multiple circular motifs have been stitched together, like exploding fireworks in the sky, is just irresistible. But the reality is,its just alternating rows of shells and dc tog’s. Where the stitches gather creates a hump, making this stitch pattern a beautiful combination of humps and lumps. I really love running my fingers through its gorgeous texture.
