LET’S PLAY – CROCHET VINTAGE – SIDEWAYS


Let’s begin this FREE PATTERN #9, gather your yarns and hooks, get yourself a cuppa, and let’s play, let’s have some crochet fun!

This week #9

I have another amazing and interesting crochet stitch for you, from my vintage 1970’s stitch collection.  We are going to tackle a SIDEWAYS crochet stitch pattern. It is really very simple and once again you can change colour in every row if you wish.  


I will show you how to crochet a swatch with the basic stitches and ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS REMEMBER to have some fun whilst crocheting this stitch.


I suggest you start with one (1) colour and then have a play with some colour changing, every row if you wish, and watch how the stitches stand out and create a lovely pattern.
