How to make a rainbow crochet stitch.

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.

Why is it called the bean stitch? Probably because it fundamentally sort of resembles a bean… a reclining one. It’s a cousin of the puff stitch, however, it’s not worked up quite the same. As above, it leans to one side. When worked in columns, it makes a rotating crisscross. I have decided on looping the rows in this cowl, turns or switches. It all simply all inclines one way, making it look like the rows slant. Fun, isn’t? For more free designs every day follow us on Facebook. Links to the free pattern and video tutorials are below.
