The Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch Is a Must Try
One look at this amazing stitch and I won’t have to try too hard to convince you to give it a try. The Vintage Fan Ripple Stitch is simply amazing.
Why do I love it so much?
For several reasons. Let’s have a look:
- It works up lightning fast. Those triple trebles are over an inch tall!
- It looks very advanced. You’ll impress anyone with these skills!
- It has great texture. Tall stitches, raised stitches, wavy stitches…yes!
- It’s perfect for color changes. The stitch has a perfect repeat for playing with color.
These are the main reasons I love the vintage fan ripple stitch. It has been around for decades and is a great way to take your crocheting skills up a notch.
