Crochet Grit Stitch
Mixed Grit Stitch

Crochet Grit Sttich

The crochet grit stitch is a great stitch for beginners or anyone, really.  It’s simple to work because it’s all single crochet.  The mixed grit stitch is just as easy with some double crochet thrown in.  So, it’s perfect for when you’re just learning.

It looks great with a little bit of a v-stitch look to it.  It also has a nice texture without being too bumpy.  That’s really nice for projects for kids and babies.

Mixed Grit Stitch

The mixed grit stitch is actually my favorite of the two stitches.  It looks so textured and complicated, but in a soft, pretty sort of way.  You’ll see what I mean when you work it.  It’s really great.

Don’t worry either, because If you can work the grit stitch, then the mixed grit stitch will be easy as pie.

Let’s give them both a try.
