Crochet Tutorial – Feather Stitch

I came across the Feather Stitch recently and when I tried it, I loved how it works up! The stitch is very dense so the fabric it builds is very thick and sturdy and is perfect for making dishcloths and baskets!

  1. Good heavens ! – I have never come across this one before ! – and me an ardent fan of browsing YouTube looking for stitches, too (not only in English but in Turkish and Russian, as well ! ๐Ÿ˜€ My secret is to run the videos at half or quarter speed and make notes). There are some RIPPERS in YouTube, Arunima – as you probably know.
    Thanks for this: instructional videos like this I find extremely useful !

    1. I didn’t know you could run videos at other speeds! I am glad you like this stitch and found my tutorial useful ๐Ÿ™‚
