Crochet Basics: Sedge Stitch
The crochet Sedge Stitch is one of our favorite stitches for baby blankets! It’s soft and puffy and works up fast. I figured it might be helpful to share a little picture tutorial of how to work that stitch. It works wonderfully for lots of projects. For instance, it offers a bit of texture for the washcloth, looks beautiful for the tea towel and has little, to no gapping for the pot holder. This stitch is also insanely beginner-friendly! You only need to know basic crochet knowledge of chaining, single, half double and double crochets to work this particular stitch. Discover a step-by-step picture tutorial for the sedge stitch, I hope you’ll find it useful!
