The textured wave crochet stitch is a great way to bring a little extra texture to your projects. It isn’t a reversible stitch so it’s best suited for projects where only one side will show.

Suggested Supplies

The textured wave crochet stitch works up stretchy and dense and although it’s perfect for medium weight yarn, it works up nice in other yarn weights too.

Supplies used in demonstration video:

  • Red Heart Soft Yarn
  • 5.5 mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn needle
