It looks an awful lot like knitting, doesn’t it? This is what we like to call Crochet Stockinette. Unlike other techniques, our method does not involve Tunisian crochet or knooking. It uses only stitches you already know. Any crocheter--even a beginner--can do this technique.
UPDATE: For interested parties, I’ve added a blurb about the differences between this technique and similar techniques at the end of the tutorial.
