Crochet has always been my forte (unlike knitting), so whenever I learn a new crochet stitch that closely resembles a knitted stitch, without even knowing it, I start squealing in excitement and joy!It should come as no surprise then, that last week when I stumbled upon the Crunch Stitch it was a momentous occasion, as I immediately saw the obvious similarities between said stitch and the purl stitch in knitting!
The Crunch Stitch has one of the loveliest textures I’ve seen in a while, whilst still remaining a fairly easy stitch for you all to learn, perfect for crochet newbies to give a go.
Personally, I’m really looking forward to using this stitch for future blanket and scarf projects as I know the end result will be beautiful, and the process fun and effortless!
If you’re a devoted crocheter and equally as enthusiastic as I am always am about soaking up some extra crochet knowledge, this helpful video will guide you through all the necessary steps to learn the “Crunch Stitch” (in an easy to follow speed), as you continue on your ever-growing crochet journey!
