Crochet Basics: Mini Triangles Stitch
A new easy crochet tutorial, the mini triangle stitch, is now a free crochet pattern on the blog. The mini triangle stitch is a great grid-like stitch with a modern flair. It's simple, lightly textured, with small gaps, and is suitable for a variety of projects. From garments to accessories, it's great for any season. I love how quick this stitch is to crochet, and we will learn how to crochet it in this new, easy-to-follow crochet tutorial. Grab your crochet hook and let us get started!
