The Two Color Interlocking Block Stitch is a colorwork stitch with a lot of visual impact. Using only chains and double crochet stitches, this stitch forms into a strong vertical stripe pattern. Easy to make, it would work well for bags or cushion covers.
Woolspun, with an exquisite range of neutrals and vivid classic colors, will quickly become your go-to yarn. The 12-ply construction means that garments drape beautifully and afghans and warm weather accessories have a cushiony soft bounce to them. Sold exclusively at Michaels and LionBrand.com
