One of my favorite things about new patterns and designs is the textures that you can create with simple patterns. The feel of a chunky cable scarf on a winter-y day or the soft drape of a lace-weight top in summer; the textures created in the crochet world are as different and varied as the artist that create them.
Lately, I’ve been working in thread crochet, but the texture patterns can be used with any type of yarn. Working in just the back loops (or even the back-back loops) for each row gives a great ridged texture.
Alternating the stitches can produce soft, almost bubbly textures like this sc,dc pattern.
Surface crochet, spike stitches, and puff stitches are also hot right and all give your work fantastic results for adding some dimension to your work.
My crochet time gets limited by this little one – she keeps trying to help!
