All About Extended Crochet Stitches
YouTube Live – approx 10:35am
Extended crochet stitches are your standard stitches with an extra chain right in the middle of the action! Any stitch can be extended, and doing so can have a couple of purposes. It creates a drapier, thinner fabric, which is great for wearables. And it can create a sort of half-way height stitch, splitting the difference between the other stitch heights!
In this video I’ll go over how to create an extended stitch out of any stitch – and how to work decreases with this extra touch!
