Spring is gently tip toeing in here in Australia, bringing with it warmer weather and native blooms. Inspired by this new burst of life, how could I not want to share one of my favourite stitches with all of you?
The Wattle Stitch uses a combination of simple crochet stitches to create a dense and tightly textured design… Perfect to use when crocheting those cosy scarves and snuggly afghans, as this stitch is reversible and works up into a delightfully warm fabric!
