Have you ever heard of extended crochet stitches?? In my search for some new stitch combinations for a new design I came across these type of stitches. I absolutely loved them from the first time I tried them out so I had to share with you! This post will concentrate on the extended single crochet stitch.
I love this stitch as a substitute for a regular single crochet stitch as well as a half double crochet stitch.
The reason I love this stitch as a substitute for a half double crochet stitch is because of the thickness. The extended single crochet stitch is about the same height of a half double crochet stitch but the thickness of it is a lot thinner. This can be helpful when needing to adjust the drape of an item.
You really can incorporate this stitch into many projects. Use it to make a hat or you can even use it to make a nice lapghan.
Now lets get to the photo tutorial so that you can begin learning this stitch and making your very own projects with it!
