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.

REMEMBER you are the creator use whatever yarn or thread you have, and enjoy the process.
