I'm running out of ideas for squares - I finally decided to make up a square out of a stitch and wanted to find something that I had not tried before. Then, like magic, I picked up the Winter 2009 Interweave Crochet magazine and there inside was a nice little stitch on display. It is called (according to them) the Wattle Stitch, and is as easy as pie. Basically a sc, ch, dc in the ch space below...an ending sc at each edge on top of the beginning ch only.
So, out came the yarn and in no time I whipped up a little 9" square for the swap. I just LOVE this stitch...the square has some stretch, both ways, and load of texture. It is also quick, easy, and makes for a nice weight in my Vanna's Choice.
Tell me what you think!
I'm working on another 10" square for a Comfortghan that Mugginsquilts on Ravelry is making for a secret recipient. I'll be done with it in an hour or so, and then will post it here, too. Did I say it was quick?
