Crochet Surface Stitch

This stitch is a total blast for any crocheter! You will love when you try it.

While it’s a truism that you should know as many different stitches as you can, some are more worth knowing than others. The surface stitch is interesting, because it’s a great way of topping off or finishing a piece that’s already made by slip-stitching additional yarn to make stripe or accent motifs.  You can also use this technique to go outside of the rows or rounds of the project and apply a surface motif or applique such as a monogram or image. This would be a great way to add a monogram or image to an existing project. Please find a links to two free tutorials how to crochet surface stitch below photos.
