Nice stitch, it is my suggestion that we could appreciate it more, if made in light color. Lately I can barely appreciate the beauty of stitches made in grey and diffuse yarn.
Thanks for the feedback. We use the yarns that our sponsors send us.
Any reason you use grey yarn on a white background to present your swatches?
Sometimes it is very difficult to make out the pattern as in today’s example.
I really appreciate your ‘new stitches’ every day and they have inspire me to do lots of crochet but a brighter colour for demos would be appreciated!
That’s what our yarn sponsor sent us. Their sponsorship allows you to enjoy our content for free.
How many stitches do we need to cast on for making the swatch? I do not understand 6 +5. Please explain. I have not been knitting for very long and want to learn more stitch types. I enjoy receiving a New Stitch A Day.
You will cast on in multiples of 6 (12, 18, 24, etc.) then add 5 stitches at the end. You can make the swatch whatever size you want. 🙂
