Crochet Stitches that Look Knitted

I asked some of my favorite designers what their favorite stitch patterns were and I received several comments about “knit-look” crochet stitches for those of us who love the Knit Look but don’t knit (like me!)

I asked Amber of Divine Debris and Paloma of la tienda de Paloma and they both love working into the 3rd loop of half double crochet stitches. Here’s a quick tutorial about the technique.

I asked ACCROchet and she said alternating back loop half double crochet and slip stitches. It makes gorgeous waves as shown in her Ski Bunny hat.Ski Bunny Hat by ACCROchet
