I think there are a few ways to create Rib Crochet. This method is quite easy.
Handy Teddie, the changeable handtowel holder – can hold different towels at your convenience.
Handy Teddie does not need to go into the wash machine. But the towels can. Meanwhile Handy Teddie holds out a new one for you.
You can easily make and add to the collection of hand towels. If Handy Teddie can hold them, he will.
Single crochet (sc) stitch and/or its variations, are the single most used stitch in crochet amigurumi, Wayuu bags, tapestry crochet.
Here my focus will be on which stitches I recommend for crochet amigurumi and crochet for Wayuu Mochila bags.
Let’s have a look at the variations of the sc.
I introduced the strap single crochet in an earlier post. However that was worked flat – to and fro; not circular.
When making amigurumi items or Wayuu bags, we almost always work in the round. So we need to modify this strap single crochet stitch so that we can use it for circular items.
Modified Shallow Crochet Stitch is a variation of the single crochet (sc) stitch which is very much like the modified crochet stitch except it is more dense and has shorter rows.
Because this modified shallow crochet stitch produces such a dense, no-hole fabric, it is ideal for amigurumi crochet because the stuffing won’t show through.
I am not sure that Modified Crochet Stitch, being such a generic term, is the best nor correct name for this stitch. However I will leave it as is, mainly because this video I will refer you to, calls it just that.
I also tend to call this Traditional Wayuu Stitch because this is the stitch most commonly used in making Wayuu Mochila bags. It is also a common stitch in Tapestry Crochet.
When you have to make a large circular crochet, starting with chain stitch foundation – one of the most annoying & hardest thing is trying to ensure that the long string of chain stitches is not twisted when you join end to end to form the foundation circle.
This easy, little trick solves the problem – ensuring that when you join a long string of chain stitches end to end to form a circle – there is no twisting.
