I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

The season for light and airy crocheted items is passing, and we are now getting into the time for heavier, denser and definitely warmer projects. The brick stitch makes a heavier, drapy cloth ideal for a blanket or shoulder wrap that will serve you well during those chilly winter evenings, or as a winter-time decoration for your bed or couch. It’s a lovely and useful, if somewhat labor intensive stitch. A link to the free pattern is below photos.

An alternative is the millstone stitch, which is a bit similar in that it has a mesh of one color interspersed with bricks of a different color. It also makes a lovely, dense material. It’s great that some of these old-timey stitches are making a comeback and that you can work them into modern projects.
