I have always been fascinated with the ‘knit’ look – I have yet to master knitting so I have searched for a stitch that I could use to get the look I wanted in crochet.

This is a very simple pattern; however, the stitch can be difficult to master. Try to keep your stitch tension relaxed while working the increase rounds.

I love this stitch and the look it gives my projects; my desire to have a hat look ‘knit’ but be crochet was all the incentive I required to keep at it to make the stitch work for me.

It took a few attempts for me to get it right. Don’t give up – it really is worth the effort!
