Interesting Blister Stitch pattern makes a unique addition to a textured afghan project or a nice scrubbie dishcloth. Excellent for swap exchanges, made in heavier worsted yarn, it works up to 9”. Instructions are also provided for working a crocheted chain edge.

Video and photo tutorial on two methods of blister stitching.

This is a FUN STITCH and everyone should learn it. Once I mastered it, I used it for other projects, such as mittens, cowls, and hats.

Thank you to jillyphish for her lovely instructional video.
