Inspired by the wrap shawls commonly worn in the time period of our story, slip stitch crochet worked in the front loop only gives the stretchy ribbed look of knit with the ease of using a hook.

One of Nine Crochet designs inspired by The Secret Stitch, the first novel in a new fiber fiction series from C. Jane Reid, tracing the evolution of crochet. Each design is named for a character from the story, with quotes that inspired that accessory.
