I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in a crocheting rut lately. I’ve been working an afghan for months now, and I just want to try something new! I want to learn some new patterns, but I don’t always have the time (or patience) to wrestle with a super complicated pattern involving lots of counting and a bunch of new stitches. So when I stumbled upon this tutorial using three stitches every crocheter knows – single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet – I knew this was exactly what I’d been looking for! It’s so simple, and yet it creates such a beautiful texture! I can’t wait to try the sedge stitch on my next scarf. Go ahead and see just how simple it is in the video below! Happy crocheting, friends!
