I love exploring a new stitch pattern, and one of my current favorites is the "Oh My" Stitch Pattern - the one used in the Oh My Hat and Oh My Cowl! The stitches themselves are pretty easy - double crochet and single crochet, with lots of chaining - but there are a few special moves that make this stitch pattern work particularly well. So here's how to crochet the Oh My Stitch Pattern in the Round!

When you crochet this stitch pattern in the round, you begin with a multiple of 8 stitches, +1 if you need a turning chain (which is how I wrote both the free hat and cowl patterns). There are two special stitches included - the big shell, and the V stitch, both of which are demonstrated in the video, as well as defined in the patterns.
Beyond that, it's just a four row repeat - a round of V sts, a round of big shells, then another round of V sts and another round of big shells. The big shells and V sts are offset, which is why it takes four rounds to make a complete repeat!
In the hat, these big shells eventually shrink as you near the top, but the idea of the stitch pattern is the same. I hope this video has helped you make these patterns - I can't wait to do more with this stitch in the future, including working it in rows! Thanks for watching!
